James Suckling
This wine offers notes of white peaches, herbs and crushed stones. It’s fresh with impressive balance. The crisp acidity is well supported by a core of ripe fruit and minerality. No loose ends. Delicious finish. A blend of 92% sauvignon blanc, 7% semillon and 1% muscat. Drink now or in 2021. Synthetic cork.

Succulent peach, nectarine and dried mango flavors are intense and vibrant, showcasing plenty of style, with a note of honeysuckle lingering effortlessly.

COMMENTARY: The 2018 Honig Sauvignon Blanc is delicious and balance. TASTING NOTES: This wine has everything in order. Its aromas and flavors of dried herbs, bright melon, and earth should pair it nicely with sautéed scallops accented with lime and mild peppers. (Tasted: April 10, 2019, San Francisco, CA)

Discover Sauvignon Blanc Wines

Sauvignon Blanc is a white wine grape type best known for producing dry white wines. Its taste distinguishes it from most other white wine grape types, making it light and pleasant.

The most frequent Sauvignon Blanc taste notes are tropical, tree, and citrus fruit. When the wine originates from a colder region, subtleties of dates, papaya, melon, and many aromas of herbs or dry underbrush are more prominent. You may detect pieces of English pudding, custard, and vanilla if you're exposed to oak. While it is perhaps best recognized for being the main white wine grape type in the Bordeaux area of France and the Loire Valley, sensuous Sauvignon blancs are also produced in New World wine growing locations like as Napa Valley and Sonoma Valley in California. In addition, Sauvignon Blanc is renowned for being part of the mix that produces the sweet dessert wine known as Sauternes in Bordeaux.

This grape variety thrives in both cold and warm regions and a wide range of soil types. As a result, it's a little more complicated. In New Zealand, for example, the kind of soil on which Sauvignon Blanc is produced has a significant impact.

About the Producer: Honig Vineyard and Winery

Honig Vineyard and Winery is a producer located in the Rutherford appellation in the Napa Valley, famous for its Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon wines. The property is a champion in the sustainable use of the vineyard. The best Honig wines are made with Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc varieties from the estate's vineyards. The company also produces the same two varieties under the Napa Valley brand. In addition, there is a late-harvest Sauvignon Blanc. Honig's Sauvignon Blanc is considered the benchmark for sourcing from Napa and is distributed in several countries outside the United States. The property uses several ecological methods, including feeding the winery with solar energy and using search dogs to detect scale insects, a pest of vineyards. Honig also keeps bats on his property to feed on insects, which reduces the use of pesticides in the vineyard. Louis Honig purchased the 28-hectare (68-acre) site in 1964. The property was planted with Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc vines, which Louis sold. to neighboring wineries. He wanted to make his own wine after leaving his job in San Francisco, but unfortunately he died before that dream came true. To honor his memory, his family made several hundred cases of Sauvignon Blanc in 1981. Production of Cabernet Sauvignon began in 1989, and since then production has grown steadily.
