This Sauvignon Blanc shines for its elegant fruit character and intense minerality. The female winemaker, Laura Dias Munoz, brings these growing regions to life by allowing the natural differences in fruit character to express themselves in the glass.
Wine Enthusiast awards this wine a 91/100 and describes this wine as "bright in acidity and nicely textured, with an underlying lushness to the weight of the body. Peach and dried herb show most prominently on the palate, with a smoothness of stony mineral and lentil."
Equitem profiles the racy acidity and minerality of Knights Valley Sauvignon Blanc. Named for the Latin word for “knight,” this wine is produced from grapes grown below Mt. St. Helena in volcanic soils several hundred feet above sea level. Though made with the same techniques as Naissance, Equitem offers an entirely different experience of Sauvignon Blanc—a vibrant portrait of the knight’s leanness and grace, dominated by powerful citrus and salty stone.
