2020 Sauvignon Blanc Chateau Montelena Napa G01 - California White

St Barth’s Wine

Known as one of the oldest and prettiest wineries in the Napa Valley. Established in 1882, the estate features a stone castle built into the hillside overlooking a Chinese garden, lake, and vineyards that reach to the base of Mt. St. Helena.

In 1976, the 1973 Chardonnay won the Judgment of Paris; a historical tasting where 10 California wineries blind tasted against French wines. Books, documentaries, and the Bottle Shock movie tell the story of this event.

Nose, Incredibly ripe and floral, the wine opens with cascading aromas of tropical fruit, ripe peach, and melon. In time these give way to dried apricot and cinnamon before yielding to a well-defined albeit subtle pinch of orange blossom.

The palate, whereas the nose leans ripe, the palate embodies traditional varietal elements with plenty of bright acids, fresh grapefruit and flint to experience. Lively and fresh, the citrus seems to linger the most along with understated notes of lemongrass and Asian pear.

Finish, The wine finishes with length and persistence, driven by ample minerality and acid that would pair so well with fresh oysters or soft-ripened cheese.
