Rudd Mt. Veeder Estate Sauvignon Blanc 2022 - K. Laz Wine Collection

Rudd’s Sauvignon Blanc continues to show as one of the most compelling Whites coming out of Napa Valley and with a little age, can match up to some of the great White Bordeaux wines of France. At 1600 feet in elevation, it is an anomaly to find Sauvignon Blanc grown on such exceptional Mt. Veeder soil. Yet when vintner Leslie Rudd was first figuring out what to plant on their newly acquired land, he reached out to Didier Dagueneau, long considered one of the best Sauvignon Blanc producers in the world to ask him to visit the property. Immediately upon his visit, Didier told Leslie that the soil reminded him of his own in France's Loire Valley and with careful farming, he could produce exceptional Sauvignon Blanc and that is exactly what Leslie did despite knowing that he would never get the value of his land from farming a White instead of a Napa Valley Red. "This 2022 offers notes of freshly flowered citrus blossoms, sweet orange zest, and sun-kissed apricot. Diving deeper into the wine, notes of fennel seed, wet stone, and the lightest dappling of brioche come together to create a unique and intriguing white wine."
