The Malvasia is split into portions, with one portion whole-cluster pressed, a second portion on skins for 12 hours and a third portion on skins for 24 hours.

Grapes for this Chardonnay are sourced from a number of parcels (in 2018: 39% Santa Maria Valley, 34% San Benito County, 17% Monterey County, 10% Arroyo Grande) in the cool Central Coast appellation. On the 2018 vintage, the winery notes: "The quality of the 2018 growing season on California’s Central Coast was fantastic.

Winery Notes: "The Mending Wall 2017 Stone to Stone White is a delicious Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon blend. To retain acidity and preserve the mouthwatering nature of the wine, malolactic fermentation is blocked. We favor a more grassy, steely profile in the style of white Bordeaux, and are excited to present the first vintage of this wine aged 100% in stainless steel. The Semillon brings an appealing fleshiness to the blend, lending the palate a sleek viscosity that the Sauvignon Blanc frames with nicely integrated acid and minerality."

Beautifully layered, seamless, and polished, with medium to full-bodied richness, it's another rocking effort. This was another thrilling lineup from Greg Brewer, and I consistently rate these wines as s...

Kokomo take the utmost care in making this wine and it is consistently one of my favorite domestic Sauv Blancs. Made from multiple picks of grapes to blend racy acidity from the earlier picks with riper flavors and textures from the later picks. The result is a beautifully balanced wine with layers of flavor and great persistence. The wine is also rested in Acacia wood barrles to give a subtle spice and floral character to the wine. Delish!

It's brought up exactly like the Coteau de Vernon, so the difference (and there are always differences between the two wines) are all due to terroir. Stunning notes of ripe citrus, orange pith, spice, and floral notes all emerge from the glass, and this medium to full-bodied Condrieu has good acidity, a vibrant, elegant texture, and a great finish. It's not a blockbuster, but this estate made sure to hold onto a s...

2019 Kalinda Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc (Previously $18) (Previously $18)
Top Pick!
Just like our delicious 2018 Sauvignon Blanc, this 2019 was made by a very famous Oakville region winemaker. We can't tell you who made it or at which Oakville property it was made, but let it be known this winemaker was voted by Robert Parker (when he was active in the wine scoring scene) as the best winemaker in the world. Plenty of bright citrus nuances here with a kiss of oak. This wine is so good you will drink two bottles in a sitting. Refreshing acidity and a delightful, long finish.

Wine Enthusiast: "Spicy grape and honeysuckle notes give this wine an aromatic bouquet. The light-bodied palate presents balanced freshness. It ends dry and with a sense of ease. *Top 100 Best Buys of 2019* (AK)" (04/2019) K&L Notes: "One" is Pierre Sparr's multi-varietal assemblage of 40% Riesling, 40% Muscat, and 20% Pinot Gris.

Producer's note: "Alberico White is a wine of bright yellow color with greenish tones. To the nose, very intense notes emerge which are persistent, complex and toasty, reminding citrus and exotic fruits, buttery sensations and vanilla. To the palate it is soft, harmonious, sapid, fresh, persistent and elegant. The Sémillon finds in the volcanic soil a very special personality that allows it to best express all its characteristics. The prolonged aging in cask enhances its roundness and makes the Alberico White a unique wine in its area."

Frog's Leap is one of Napa Valley's original leaders in organic farming, also dry farming their Rutherford estate. Winery note: "Dubbed a 'Prince of a Wine' by the New York Times in 1982, this wine set a course that hasn't veered much from its original ideals. Today this wine is still made from 100 percent Sauvignon Blanc grapes and done so in such a way that the alcohol is kept low, the acidity high, and the flavors crisp and refreshing.
