Other Notes
This exquisite, Graves-like Sauvignon Blanc welcomes the first member of our family’s sixth generation – Georgia Eileen Dixon. Georgia is fermented and aged in all new French oak for 18 months before being bottled, and should drink well for at least three to four years. Offering unprecedented depth and complexity, amazing texture and a long finish, Georgia has been lauded by Robert Parker as “…potentially the most serious Sauvignon Blanc to ever come out of California.”
2012 Georgia Sauvignon Blanc

WINEMAKER NOTES

In the tradition of our Georgia Sauvignon Blanc, this wine reveals complex aromas of honeysuckle, exotic tea, citrus peel  and white peach blossom...what a sophisticated and intense nose! Wonderful mouthfeel with a round, juicy texture; this wine is extremely focused and charming. Combining power and elegance, a vintage that should age gracefully for a long time.  - Philippe Melka, Winemaker

ACCOLADES

94 | THE WINE ADVOCATE

"More controversial, but to me one of a handful of profound Sauvignon Blancs made in California, is the 2012 Sauvignon Blanc Georgia. This is 100% Sauvignon Blanc from the Totem Vineyard in Yountville. It is fermented in new French oak and aged there for 18 months prior to bottling. Robin Lail and her consultant Philippe Melka only produced about 300 cases, but it is possibly the most singular and distinctive Sauvignon Blanc made in Northern California...This wine has notes of honeysuckle, lemon oil, a hint of tangerine, brioche and a medium to full-bodied, stunningly rich, complex mouthfeel. The oak is pushed way to the background, but the wine is much bigger, richer and more penetrating than your typical Sauvignon Blanc." 94 points —Robert Parker, Jr., The Wine Advocate, October 2014
