2018 AVETA Sauvignon Blanc
The 2018 AVETA Sauvignon Blanc offers an expressive nose of tangerine, papaya, guava, orange blossom, pineapple and lemon grass. The wine has bright acidity and a flavorful mid-palate that leads to a long finish filled with orange zest and kiwi flavors.
While Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars began making Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc in the early 1980s, 2013 was the first vintage of AVETA, named for a water goddess often depicted carrying fruit. It is a fitting moniker to express the vibrant fruit flavors and minerality of our Sauvignon Blanc
