2017 HALL Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc
Brilliant straw with a green tinge in color, this refreshing and vibrant Sauvignon Blanc is bursting with aromas of citrus blossom, lemon zest, and fresh cut pineapple underscored with a note of dried summer grass. Crisp acidity on the palate is complimented with notes of orange peel and minerality. The full bodied mid-palate, developed by lees stirring in tank, carries the fresh flavors through a lengthy finish.

|Vintage Notes||Our 2017 harvest wrapped up early fall following summer heat spurts and a growing season that saw significant rain throughout the state, ending a five-year drought. The season began with rainfall that refilled reservoirs and replenished soils. Harvest began early at a normal pace, and then progressed rapidly during a heat wave in late August and early September. Temperatures cooled mid-September, slowing the harvest pace and allowing grapes to ripen gradually. This is a strong quality vintage.|
