Honig Late Harvest Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley 2018 Half

  • Grape Sauvignon Blanc
  • Country USA
  • Region California
  • ABV 10.7
  • Case size 6 / 37.5cl
  • Intricately woven aromas and flavors of baked apple, dried apricot, orange blossom, and freshly toasted almonds. Rich and exquisitely balanced on the palate. Bright and complex, this wine shows citrus, green apple, and dried pear elements are interwoven with vanilla, grapefruit rind, and dried stone fruit. There is an enticing dash of melon on the finish. A lovely dessert wine to sip on its own or pair it with apple crisp or a cheese course.
  • Due to their proximity to the Napa River, the grapes experience Botrytis cinerea, also known as “Noble Rot”, leading to the concentration of sugars, flavors, and acid.

Honig is deeply, deeply concerned with the sustainability of their winery. Ensuring that the vineyard works in harmony with it’s surroundings is top of their priority list. They have beehives in all of their vineyards to avoid using imported swarms (and therefore produce honey as well) use flocks of sheep to keep ground cover down and power their vineyard through solar power. This attention to detail shows in the quality of every wine they produce.

The story behind Honig starts in 1964 when Louis, an advertising executive in San Francisco bought a beautiful tract of land in Rutherford and founded a small vineyard, hiring a winemaker and pretty much leaving it alone. By 1980, when he passed away, the plan had been cemented in his architect son's mind to build a family house there.... but by 1984, he had decided it wasn't a dream he could complete due to financial constraints. Phoning his son up to give him the bad news, he was slightly shocked when the 22-year-old Michael Honig dropped everything to move up to Napa and take over the winery himself! Discovering that the cellar was chock-full of back vintages that hadn't been sold...he rented a van, drove the wine down to San Francisco, and forced every restauranteur to taste till he had sold the lot. And thus, a winery was born.
