2016 QUINTESSA “ILLUMINATION” SAUVIGNON BLANC
With a bouquet that is one of the most penetrating and intense from any Sauvignon Blanc I’ve ever experienced, spotlighting vivid passionfruit, exotic mango, zesty tangerine, caramelized grapefruit and sweet floral, Quintessa’s 2016 Illumination is exceptionally bright and full of energy… Brought to life by Rebekah Wineburg, who honed her skills at Rudd and Buccella before becoming winemaker at Quintessa, teamed with consulting winemaker Michel Rolland, one of the most influential winemakers in the world with hundreds of clients spanning 13 countries. This truly top-level domestic Sauvignon Blanc shouldn’t be missed.
Created from select sites in Southern Napa Valley and Sonoma County as well as two biodynamically farmed vineyard blocks, from the winery’s Estate vineyard in Rutherford, the grapes were gently crushed on the winery roof and make their way to the fermentation room below, utilizing a gravity-flow method. Shining bright the moment the wine enters the glass and following through with focused passion fruit, honeyed melon, orange blossom and fresh guava. This wine guaranteed to brighten any occasion this Fall.

2016 QUINTESSA "ILLUMINATION" SAUVIGNON BLANC
Winery Notes: "The 2016 Illumination is alive with aromatic complexity, beautiful texture and bright flavors. The fruit aromas of white peach, kiwi and guava interplay with fresh herbs, pink grapefruit, and beeswax honey create an intricate bouquet. On the palate, the wine dances with stone fruit, lemon zest, and a touch of minerality, followed by a fresh, flavorful finish."
