Chimney Rock 2004 Elevage Blanc White (Napa Valley)

This blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Sauvignon Gris is all barrel-fermented—the trick is that only 30% of the barrels are wood, the rest are stainless steel. The result is a complex, multifaceted Sauvignon that's meant to pay homage to white Graves. Subtle toasted nut and vanilla shadings frame melon and peach fruit, while the mouthfeel is creamy and rich, balanced by a bit of grapefruity tang on the finish.
