The Oberon Sauvignon Blanc is distinctive in style because its fruit is sourced from both our warmer Oso Vineyard, located in northeastern Napa Valley, and the cooler Milliken Vineyard in the southern part of the valley. "With each vintage, we want Oberon Sauvignon Blanc to show bright natural acidity and fresh flavors. We also want an underlying richness and complexity that balances the wine and adds fullness and length to the mouth-feel," says winemaker Tony Coltrin. The 2015 vintage includes 11.0 percent of Sauvignon Musqué clone grown in the Oso Vineyard, which adds another layer of richness and expressive aromatics to the blend, starting with citrus and passion fruit notes, tart kiwi, and developing into orange blossom.
An initial impression of rich, buttery cream quickly turns to aromas of honey and lightly toasted almonds, followed by tropical aromas of pineapple, citrusy lemon and crème brulee. The wine is refreshing on the palate, with a minerality that is both bright and clean, drawing you into a vibrant tartness and lemon zest that is absolutely, positively Bonterra Chardonnay, vintage after vintage.
Terroir - soils, climate and people - imbues a wine region with a distinct sense of place. These unique qualities allow select varietals to thrive. Just as every major city has a signature landmark, every major winegrowing region has a signature varietal. The varietals within these regions express a character, a style and a sense of place that is wholly their own.
The world's finest winegrowing regions boast a best-of-class varietal that represents the global benchmark of quality for that varietal - the standard by which all others are held. The vision behind UNPARALLELED is to make these best-of-class (or best-of-region) wines accessible to all wine lovers.
Super Tuscans are the most modern manifestation of Italian creativity, where the traditional Sangiovese of Tuscany is blended with more international varietals like Cabernet Sauvignon. Today, Super Tuscans have distinguished themselves from the classical Sangiovese wines of Tuscany and have created a high benchmark reenergizing the entire region. Our wine expresses abundant deep red fruit aromas with an elegant, full bodied mouth feel and subtle tannic structure.
