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  French oak barrels (70% new).

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 finished blend, the barrel sample of 2018 Georgia Sauvignon Blanc (100% Sauvignon Blanc) has a beautiful understated perfume of waxed lemons, citron, fresh grapefruit and tangerine peel with touches of lime leaves, white pepper and crushed rocks. The palate is medium-bodied, vibrant, intense and wonderfully fresh, finishing long and mineral laced."
