Hourglass, Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc Estate 2017
Containing a splash of Sémillon (9%) , the 2017 Estate Sauvignon Blanc gives up intense lemon juice, grapefruit peel and green apple aromas with hints of pea pods and elderflower. Medium-bodied, elegant, refreshing and with plenty of zippy flavors and mineral accents, it finishes on a lingering herbal note.
Hourglass’s Estate Sauvignon has quietly become a benchmark for the varietal in the entire Napa Valley. As of this writing, it is a glass pour at The French Laundry in Yountville. It’s an excellent example of Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc any way you look at it-and frankly a better relative value than many marquee brands we've tasted - this is decidedly tropical but balanced, with notes of bananas foster, melon, and starfruit. Dripping with old-vine intensity, we couldn't resist this one

I defy anyone who knows white Bordeaux to say this wine is not from Bordeaux. Easily the best Sauvignon Blanc I have every had outside of Graves!
