2017 JAX Y3 Sauvignon Blanc

Y3. Or as you may ask, why not? After all, the beauty of this wine runs far deeper than the label. Celebrating three generations of land-tilling, wine loving Jacksons, the family is proud to present Y3, a wine as special as the memories of their grandparents at Yarrayne Ranch.  Summers get hot in Calistoga and it was on such a feverish day that siblings Kimberly and Trent found inspiration for this wine. The aim was simple:  to make a clean and refreshing wine while representing a "true to varietal" Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc.  We call this our "Poolside Sipper."

The Craft

This single vineyard wine is fermented in stainless steel. It helps preserve the characteristics of the Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc, fruit-forward and crisp with a bright minerality finish. Tropical notes are complemented with clean citrus flavors of lemon and grapefruit and the palate finishes beautifully.

Tasting Notes

Focusing on purity of fruit and graceful minerality, Jax Sauvignon Blanc is bursting with aromas of ruby red grapefruit, orange blossom and honeydew melon. The mouth-watering finish is crisp and long, its white peach and lemon zest notes echoing through to the next sip.
