Product Notes:
VINTAGE : After a wet winter and spring, we had slow even, ripening, followed by a heat spikes in July and then an unusually cool fall that allowed the grapes to completely ripen without dehydrating. Thanks to our dry farming and Biodynamic® techniques, we had little botrytis from the rain and the vines remained healthy in the heat, providing us with fully ripe, flavorful grapes in September.
VINEYARD : 2006 is the first year that our Fumé Blanc was completelyfarmed Biodynamically. This holistic farming practice uses the earth’s natural cycles and organic preparations to grow balanced, healthy vines without artificial fertilizers, pesticides, or fungicides. The grapes for this wine are grown at our cool American Canyon and Carneros vineyards that rest in the southern tip of Napa Valley, not far from San Pablo Bay, which spills into San Francisco Bay. The coolness controls vigor and allows the grapes to develop a crisp liveliness that is impossible to achieve in warmer areas. The coolness and Biodynamic farming reduced yields, which helps the vines to be better balanced and produce richer flavors in the grapes.
THE WINE : We fermented 80% of the grapes in previously used French oak with the remainder in stainless steel tanks and 900-gallon French oak casks, called foudres, using only naturally-occurring yeasts. We then aged the wine five months in neutral barrels. These techniques add body while showcasing the wonderful fruit, not masking it behind new oak. In the glass, the wine offers a whiff of the tropics with kiwi, grapefruit, pineapple and a hint of minerality. On the tongue, this full-bodied wine has a crisp, refreshing texture and a long finish. This versatile, flavorful white wine is a great companion to a wide variety of food flavors and textures.

About Estate:
Miljenko “Mike” Grgich first gained international recognition at the celebrated “Paris Tasting” of 1976. Then, in a now-historic blind tasting, a panel of eminent French judges swirled, sniffed, and sipped an array of the fabled white Burgundies of France and a small sampling of upstart Chardonnays from the Napa Valley. When their scores were tallied, the French judges were shocked: they had chosen Mike’s 1973 Chateau Montelena Chardonnay as the finest white wine in the world. Mon Dieu! The results stunned the international wine establishment and immediately earned Mike a reputation as one of the greatest winemakers in the world.

Food Pairing:
Sauvignon Blanc pairs well with salads, poultry, seafood, and cheese.

About Varietal:
