Inglenook Sauvignon Blanc

About Inglenook Sauvignon Blanc

While Inglenook is perhaps best known for Cabernet Sauvignon, the lower portion of our Chateau vineyard, known as Tank House, has proven to be an exceptional site for growing white grape varieties.

The sandy-clay loam soils in this area of the estate have good water-holding capacity and underlying gravel for drainage, features that are critical for the development of both Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon.

2020 Vintage Notes:

Inglenook has long embraced organic farming, and we were among the first Napa Valley wineries to have our vineyards certified organic more than 20 years ago. 

Our farming practices, combined with low temperatures during the winter before the 2020 growing season, made desirable soil nutrients for early spring growth available to our Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon vines. In turn, the leaf canopies developed early, and provided ample protection from a heat spike we experienced just prior to harvest. We harvested all the fruit for our 2020 Sauvignon Blanc under optimal conditions over a week-long period, finishing on August 19th.

Winemaker’s Tasting Notes:

Opening with fresh, well-defined notes of lemon zest and honeydew, the 2020 Sauvignon Blanc shows exemplary varietal character. The rich, creamy mid-palate leads to a lingering finish highlighted by lemon-lime essences, minerality, and a touch of white peach.
