Arietta 2015 "On the White Keys" Sauvignon Blanc, Napa - 93 Points


Arietta 2015 "On the White Keys" Sauvignon Blanc, Napa

Anthony Galloni 93 Points: "The 2015 On The White Keys is fresh, vibrant and wonderfully nuanced. It is also remarkably delicate and light on its feet for a vintage that generally produced richer, more unctuous wines. Expressive in its aromatics and brisk in feel, the 2015 offers exceptional balance and class. This is a terrific showing. The 35% new oak is very nicely balanced. In 2015, the Sauvignon Blanc is especially pronounced, while there is only 10% Sémillon in the blend."


Winemaker Notes: "Notes from Arietta Winemaker Andy Erickson: “The Arietta On the White Keys is a bold, exuberant wine inspired by our favorite white wines from Bordeaux This vintage of the “White Keys” is powerful and mouthwatering, the Sauvignon Blanc bringing notes of melon, citrus peel, and orange blossom, as well as a marked acidity and fine texture. The Semillon, which before blending is allowed to go through malolactic fermentation, is aged in new French oak, and brings a depth and broad palate impression, along with notes of fig, persimmon, almond and baking spices."
