St. Supéry Estate Vineyards and Winery is a 100% Estate Grown, sustainably farmed winery located in the renowned Rutherford growing region in the heart of Napa Valley. Committed to producing the highest quality estate wines without compromise, we focus on sustainable winery and farming operations to protect the land and environment for future generations. Our Napa Valley Estate collection includes Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Oak Free Chardonnay, Rosé and Moscato. These wines are balanced and showcase bright, fruit-forward flavors.

Vintage 2018 growing season started with a relatively mild winter and spring. There was decent rain in early and mid-January, almost none in February, and a fair amount in March and April which filled our lakes and kicked up the growing season. July was warm and August saw markedly cooler temperatures absent of heat spikes, followed by ideal weather in September and October. There was a little rain in early October, but warm weather and dry breezes followed, allowing the grapes to hang on the vines longer and further develop their avors. Harvest continued through November because of the ideal weather enabling the fruit to stay on the vine with no pressure from Mother Nature. The quality of the fruit was terrific, and the resulting wines show tremendous promise.

Winemaker Notes: This radiant Sauvignon Blanc presents with pale straw yellow with hints of green hues. Pristine estate fruit is showcased on the nose, where this wine gives generously of pink grapefruit and lime citrus aromas with a subtle thread of green guava and fennel. In the cellar, minimal intervention yields a vivid expression of freshness on the palate with flavors of grapefruit and lime zest zinging through the finish to create a wine of agility, brightness, and devotion to its essence.

CRITICAL ACCLAIM


Tasting Panel - "This fine winery has made Sauvignon Blanc a specialty. A classic rendition, this stunning wine is elegant, intricate, and delicious with a long finish."


Wine & Spirits - "Michael Scholz and his team grow some of the best sauvignon blanc in Napa Valley at Dollarhide Ranch, St. Supéry’s estate in the eastern hills. The long, cool harvest season allowed the fruit for this wine to ripen into a brisk, gentle, mouthwatering flavor of green lime and agave. It’s the best vintage of the wine we’ve tasted, on par with some of the exceptional releases of the Dollarhide Estate Vineyard bottling (that one being a block selection that sees some oak; this one is fermented entirely in stainless steel). Well worth buying by the case, this is a delicious white for ceviche, spicy Thai prawns, or any roast fish"


Wilfred Wong - Commentary: "Over the past decade, St. Supéry has been one of the Napa Valley's top Sauvignon Blanc producers. The 2018 vintage is sleek and persistent." Tasting Notes: "This wine is bright, fresh, and lively. Its aromas of ripe core fruits, citrus hints, and dried herbs should pair well with sliced raw tuna in a tossed salad with a light dressing." (Tasted: July 18, 2019, San Francisco, CA)


Wine Spectator - "Distinctive, with floral details and juicy flavors of peach and hard lemon candy. Touches of lemongrass and lemon verbena add aromatic lift on the finish. Drink now."
