Ehlers Estate / Sauvignon Blanc St. Helena 2017 / 750mL
Grape: Sauvignon Blanc
Geography: Napa Valley, California, United States
Appellation: St. Helena
A single-vineyard, terroir-driven Sauvignon Blanc from our Estate. Aged 6 months sur lie, this bone-dry, full-bodied wine is defined by its lively acidity, and rich floral, mouth-watering flavor. The inviting aromas of orange blossoms, lemon zest, guava, and ripe pineapple are followed by a palate full of juicy grapefruit and pure citrus flavors.
Ehlers Estate continues a proud tradition of farming with experienced vineyard and cellar teams that share a non-interventionist winemaking philosophy firmly rooted in the belief that terroir defines a wine, but passion, patience and hard work are needed to ensure that it is fully expressed in the bottle.
Our organic vineyard practices leave a minimal footprint on the land and give us maximum flavor in the grapes. Taking advantage of the robust Estate ecosystem and carefully-chosen rootstocks, our vineyard crew coaxes the vines to fully express the numerous soil types and microclimates found on the estate. Once the grapes are harvested, the cellar crew knows when to be hands on and when to let nature takes its course as the wines ferment, develop and age.
We strive to be responsible stewards of our land and continue the legacy of Bernard and Anne Ehlers, and Jean and Sylviane Leducq, who saw the potential that today you can taste in every bottle of Ehlers Estate wine.
