Wine Review & Notes
Gamble Family Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc comes from the 12 acre Gamble Vineyard that sits at the northerly edge of the Yountville Appellation in the geographic center of Napa Valley. The vines are chosen by massale selection, and the grapes are harvested by hand in the early morning and taken directly to the press to preserve fruit and flavor integrity. A quarter of the wine was slowly fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks over 65 days. The remaining three quarters were fermented in barrel in the cave. Native yeasts were used on both tank and barrel wine.
