Made with 14% Semillion has aromas of citrus blossom, guava, green olives and some grapefruit rind. Stirring on the lees for 3 months, gives the palate a creamy mouthfeel with a light saline and wet stone notes. D&M Tasting Notes
The 2017 Sauvignon Blanc is pliant and supple, with a bit more textural richness than is often the case. Even so, the 2017 possesses terrific nuance and aromatic definition to play off light tropical inflections. This is another classy Sauvignon Blanc from Accendo. 93 Points Antonio Galloni, December 2018.
Floral aromas of jasmine, honeysuckle and citrus blossoms add exotic notes to the tropical fruit aromas of guava, green mango, passion fruit and litchi, nuanced by touches of lemon curd, vanilla bean and spicy ginger. In the mouth, a firm and fine line of acidity provides brightness to the fleshy mid palate, while a lingering minerality, reminiscent of the sea, extends the long finish. A blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Sauvignon Musque and Semillon, the wine is refreshing, persistent, restrained and sophisticated. Notes winemaker Françoise Peschon: This wine rewards the taster with its exotic aromas, bright flavors and classic minerality, and begs to be enjoyed until the end of the bottle! Winery Notes
We have always said our best wine has yet to be made.
This was our philosophy as the proprietors of Araujo Estate and stewards of the historic Eisele Vineyard, and it is our guiding principle today with Accendo Cellars, the Napa Valley winegrowing venture we founded in 2013. Inspired by the revolutionary Napa Valley wines of the 1950s, ‘60s and ‘70s, Accendo pays homage to an earlier era and marks a beginning of a promising new paradigm: to source grapes from some of the finest vineyard sites and terroir in Napa Valley; to make a wine of balance and restraint in the style of Napa Valley’s past wines; and to produce this wine with the commitment, energy and meticulous attention to detail that have characterized our past efforts.
