About the Wine:

 

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.” The 2017 vintage spent 20 months in 100% new French oak.

Robin recently served the 2004 vintage to Robert Parker who was astonished to find how fresh and complex it was at over ten years of age! He described the Georgia as one of the great Sauvignon Blancs of the USA.

  • “A barrel sample, the 2017 Georgia Sauvignon Blanc comes 100% from the Totem Vineyard in Yountville, fermented and aged in 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 the mouth with spiced citrus fruits and finishing very long and very exotic.”
