TASTING NOTES

Star bright in color, the 2019 Sauvignon Blanc has great intensity on the nose with notes of
white peach, passion fruit and elderflower and features an incredibly rounded richness on the
palate. Its clean lines and crisp acidity contrast with juicy tropical flavors of pineapple, guava,
honeydew melon and candied lime.

VINTAGE
The beginning of the 2019 growing season was defined by copious rainfall. The long,
warm summer saw very few extreme heat events, with foggy mornings setting the stage for
vibrant and expressive wines. The long, relatively mild finish to the season, not without
its moments of unpredictability, helped to preserve freshness and finesse in the fruit with
abundant hang time teasing out great color, structure and soft tannins.

WINEMAKING
To add complexity and depth to our Sauvignon Blanc our vineyard team harvests in three
stages of flavor development, picking the fruit at varied levels of ripeness. After pressing,
the juice is fermented in stainless steel tanks to retain bright acidity and preserve
fresh aromatics.

About Peju Winery

A love of farming and a passion for wine brought Tony Peju to the Napa Valley. Born near the Caspian Sea, Tony’s ideas for Peju Winery were derived from his experiences in France, England and Los Angeles. In 1983, Tony and his wife Herta (H.B.) purchased 30 acres of land in the Napa Valley with the magic ingredient – location.
Neighboring vineyards in Rutherford includes Robert Mondavi, Inglenook and Beaulieu Vineyard. Situated between Highway 29 and the Napa River, the acreage included a 1900-era house and vineyards. Looking to the future, Tony and Herta (H.B.) continue to play a vital advisory role, but daughters Lisa and Ariana along with a strong management team are now leading the future direction of the winery.
