2013 Starmont Sauvignon Blanc

April 2, 2015 - Norman Bentley
#12-15-PIE

The Starmont Winery is located in the Carneros region of Napa Valley, and the grapes from this excellent Sauvignon Blanc are sourced from various vineyards throughout the area. The composition for this wine is 95% Sauvignon Blanc and 5% Semillon, which make it somewhat Bordeaux-like in character. The wine was aged in a combination of stainless steel and oak, and the alcohol content is 13.5%.

The Starmont Sauvignon Blanc opens with an array of flowers in the nose, backed by the fragrance of melon, and a mild citrus breeze. The flavors abound with the essence of melon framed by a touch of lime, lemon zest, and just a hint of apricot. The finish is fresh and crisp, with very little aftertaste, and begs for another sip. Norm's score is 90.

The Starmont would pair well with a variety of fish and fowl dishes, but for a special treat, serve it with an assortment of soft cheeses and a platter of sliced red apples. This wine is definitely a candidate for a "back porch sipper", so it would be wonderful on a warm summer night by itself.

score: 90

price: $14 - $18
