Sauvignon Blanc is the noble white wine of Bordeaux, and Samantha’s honors both its origins and Samantha Simpkins, twin sister to Sophia.
Since its first vintage, Samantha’s has proven elusive, with the vintage regularly selling out long before the next release. And no wonder, with its aromatic nose, thanks to the Musqué clone featured in this wine, and a rich mouthfeel resulting from fermentation and sur lie aging in custom stainless steel bordeaux size barrels with a small number of new French Oak barrels to round out the palate. Beautiful floral aromas mingle on the nose while citrus and tropical notes linger on the palate. Samantha’s Alexander Valley Sauvignon Blanc is a white wine crafted with red wine drinkers in mind. ~ Winery Notes.
Lancaster EstateView all from Lancaster Estate
Here in the southernmost tip of Alexander Valley, where Knights Valley and Chalk Hill are nearby companions, growing conditions excel as a result of cooler marine influences slipping through the Valley, extending the growing season and allowing traditional Bordeaux varieties to develop elegant structure, age-worthy tannins and vibrant, rich flavors with both balance and power.
In 1995, Lancaster Estate debuted following the acquisition of Mayacama Creek Winery and its estate vineyards. Over the next two decades, with great dedication and an unswerving commitment dedicated to limited release Bordeaux styled wines that are grown, produced and bottled from our 53 estate acres, micro-farmed in small vineyard blocks, each with its own expression.
