The 2019 AVETA Sauvignon Blanc is fragrant and expressive with aromas of grapefruit, green papaya and lemongrass with a hint of tangerine. The wine has a round, flavorful mouthfeel that leads to lively and long finish with a nice touch of acidity. Try pairing AVETA with fresh fish ceviche, crab cakes or grilled oysters with mignonette sauce.
91pts Wine Enthusiast "This bright and balanced white offers tones of grass, herbs and stone fruit, with a steely core of acidity and freshness. A touch of fig adds subtle richness on the finish."
91pts James Suckling "Sliced lemon, melon and pear with some stone on the nose. It's medium-bodied, tight and fresh with a creamy texture and a delicious finish. Some green melon, too. Drink now."
Stag's Leap Wine Cellars was founded in 1970 with the purchase of a 40 acre property in the now famed Stag's Leap District AVA in Napa Valley. The winery brought international recognition to California winemaking and the Napa Valley region when their 1973 S.L.V. Cabernet Sauvignon won the 1976 Paris Tasting, also known as the "Judgement of Paris."
