The Story:  Celia Welch does not need an intro, but in case you wouldn’t know who she is – She’s the brainchild (i.e. the amazing winemaker) behind the following highly rated and highly regarded wineries:   Corra, Barbour,  Keever, 2480, Kelly Fleming, Bucella, etc.).  For the past couple of years she’s been involved with a new project called Yount Ridge.  The property is based in Oakvile, I know with a name of Yount Ridge, you’d think Yountville!  I was excited to taste the latest releases and was completely smitten by the wines.

 

The Wine: Only 3 tons were yielded from the property (2 Tons of Sauvignon Blanc and 1 Ton of Sauvignon “Musque Clone”.  All the grapes were selectively hand-harvested from their organically farmed vineyard. This might be the best SB in Napa this year.  The wine offers up a greenish hue and shows of its great aromatics on impact.  On the palate you are greeted by elegant notes of citrus, mango, grapefruit a medium body with nicely layered flavors and the right touch of crisp acidity.  This is a gorgeous wine and probably Celia’s best white ever!
