Other Notes
Georgia is grown on a three acre, dry-farmed estate vineyard in Yountville. This exquisite, Graves-style (dry white Bordeaux) Sauvignon Blanc is fermented and aged in 100% new French oak barrels for eighteen months. It displays unprecedented depth and complexity, amazing texture, and a long lingering finish. Lail Vineyards was the first winery in the New World to produce a Sauvignon Blanc in this complex and captivating style, beginning with the 2002 vintage. The proprietary name celebrates the first member of the sixth generation of our family's winemaking in Napa Valley, Georgia Eileen. It has been called by a leading wine writer"...California's most complex and multi-dimensional Sauvignon Blanc."

ACCOLADES

95 - 97 pts | THE WINE ADVOCATE

“ A barrel sample, the 2017 Georgia Sauvignon Blanc comes 100% from the Totem Vineyard in Yountville, fermented and aged 100% new French oak. It comes bursting forth with notes of ripe apricots, green mango, and lemon tart with touches of baking bread, fresh ginger, fennel seed, lanolin and orange blossom. Medium to full-bodied, the palate reveals the most incredible satiny texture with some phenolic grip, filling with spiced citrus fruits and finishing very long and very exotic." — Lisa Perrotti-Brown, MW, Robert Parker Wine Advocate

 

94 - 95 pts | VINOUS

“ The 2017 Sauvignon Blanc Georgia is another fabulous wine from Robin Lail. In 2017, the Georgia is decidedly less unctuous than it has been. This is not at all a bad thing. Lemon confit, white flowers, mint and orchard fruit flesh out in this super-expressive, nuanced Sauvignon Blanc. All the elements simply fall into place. A move towards larger format oak and lower toasted levels really allow the fruit from Lail's Totem Vineyard in Yountville site to speak with clarity.”  — Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media
