2013 Quintessa Illumination Sauvignon Blanc

“Intrigued with white wines from the Loire Valley, and desirous of a white wine from Quintessa that he could enjoy at home with friends and family, Agustin planted a half-acre of Sauvignon Blanc at the Quintessa estate in 2002. This little plot of vines lives in the alluvial soils on the northwestern corner of the estate near the river, where airflow and cooler temperatures encourage the grapes to thrive in an appellation best known for Cabernet Sauvignon.

Illumination first emanated from this little vineyard, appearing in limited circles. Quickly, its rays penetrated the palates of sommeliers, friends and guests who requested Illumination for their own cellars and restaurants. We searched for more grapes from nearby vineyards in Rutherford and the cooler southern regions of Napa Valley always seeking vineyards with alluvial soils and limited yields to provide concentration, mineral notes and bright, vibrant character.”
