" The Duckhorn Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc—first produced in 1982—has a long-standing history of being the standard by which all others are judged against. This wine has been remarkable and consistent.

" The Duckhorn Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc—first produced in 1982—has a long-standing history of being the standard by which all others are judged against. This wine has been remarkable and consistent. The recently released 2017 is another excellent effort. TASTING NOTES: This wine is bright and juicy with dried citrus and tropical fruit aromas and flavors. Its layered palate and long finish should wrap nicely around a lemon-accented and herb dusted roast chicken and make a tremendously good pairing."

Wine Spectator 90
" Elegant peach, melon and citrus flavors are juicy and plump, with a pretty floral vein and a sleek, crisp frame. A note of lemon verbena lingers. "

" Enticing aromas of grapefruit, melon, and lime leap from the glass, followed by tropical notes of lychee, pineapple, and passionfruit. On the palate, this Sauvignon Blanc is juicy and bright, with silky layers of fruit balanced by lovely natural acidity and a vibrant streak of minerality. Hints of zesty citrus and subtle baking spices linger throughout a long, focused finish. Blend: 82% Sauvignon Blanc, 18% Semillon " ~ Winery notes

View all from Duckhorn Vineyards
Duckhorn VineyardsDedicated to making wines that reflect the unique character and quality of the vineyards, Renee strives to understand the needs and opportunities presented by each specific terroir and microclimate. By approaching each vineyard block individually, Renee's goal is to harvest when the flavors have reached their peak and the tannins are at their softest. In the winery, Renee applies an artisan's approach to winemaking, blending from almost 200 distinctive lots using taste and instinct, not formula. Wines are barrel-aged separately by vineyard lot, utilizing an extensive barrel program that sources 25 different types of oak from 13 separate cooperages. The resulting wines combine accents from a comprehensive barrel program with grapes from diverse smaller appellations within the broader Napa Valley, including Howell Mountain, Carneros, Yountville, Rutherford and St. Helena. For nearly four decades, the commitment to crafting wines of distinction has remained at the heart of the Duckhorn Vineyards philosophy. As its Napa Valley estate properties continue to mature under Renee's stewardship, the winery will continue creating world-class wines from exceptional vineyards.

Duckhorn Sauvignon Blanc a Winner

"I'm a red wine drinker but when I do go with white, Duckhorn is one of two favorite Sauvignon Blancs of mine. For the money, it can't be beat. Crisp, refreshing, pairs great with lite fare, salads and cheeses."
