Our Estate Grown Louis Mel Sauvignon Blanc is named after a French emigrant, Louis Mel, who traveled to the western United States in the 1870’s seeking a place to make wines to rival the great French Crus. He found the ideal home in the Livermore Valley. Acquiring Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon cuttings from the Marquis de Lur-Saluces, owner of the famed Chateau Y’quem, he planted them in his vineyards. The Wente family acquired the Louis Mel estate in the 1930’s, where the descendants of these vines, located in the southern Livermore Valley, live in gravel and loam soils that are similar to the terroir of their native Bordeaux.

FERMENTATION
The grapes were cold fermented in stainless steel tanks to maintain the natural fruit flavors.

TASTING NOTES
Our 2019 Louis Mel Sauvignon Blanc is welcoming with fresh aromatics from flint, guava to wet stone, balanced by notes of mandarin and lime zest. This wine has a beautiful and lean minerality, bright acidity and a lingering finish.

CRITICAL ACCLAIM


Tasting Panel - "Cold fermented in stainless steel, this crisp white is anchored by aromatics and flavors of citrus, from lime to grapefruit, with complementary hints of Asian pear and chamomile. Minerality rings all the bells and whistles within the lean profile, which finishes with floral notes, white tea, and cantaloupe."
