Handwritten Wines

 

Handwritten 2015 The Author 750ml

This incredibly lively Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from our estate out in Wooden Valley. The warm and dry climate there allows us to coax gorgeous tropical fruit aromas out of the grapes, which explode with mango, kiwi and passion fruit accompanied by grapefruit and pomelo. Finished in a bit of neutral oak barrels, this Sauvignon Blanc finishes soft and elegant with a touch of brioche and apricot preserves.

Harvest & Tasting Notes:

 As a nod to the region that has inspired Handwritten wines, and of course much of the Napa Valley, we have created a Bordeaux style white wine. The Author is aptly named, as what is an author but a creator, or parent that gives birth to his art? Sauvignon Blanc, the variety that makes up the Author happens to be one of the parent grapes to our most heralded variety, Cabernet Sauvignon. With six months of half French oak and half stainless-steel aging, we offer a wine with a creamy texture, bright acidity and fresh aromatics. Drink now or cellar for two to five years.
