Our 2022 Louis Mel Sauvignon Blanc displays classic fruit combined with juicy acidity which adds up to a wine bursting with youthful exuberance. This vintage showcases notes of classic grapefruit with additional notes of white apricot, guava, and key lime. These notes are complemented by fruit-driven flavors of sweet Meyer lemon and candied citrus. This wine is well rounded with a balanced acidity, complimented by a touch of minerality on the finish. Pairs well with fresh oysters, pan seared scallops with capers and lemon, and aged Gouda.
The Tasting Panel
  • tp92

This estate-grown Sauv Blanc is named for French emigrant Louis Mel, who sought to emulate the great French crus after finding a home in Livermore Valley in the late 19th century. He was able to take possession of—and plant—cuttings of Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon from the owner of Château d’Yquem. In the 1930s, the Wente family acquired the Louis Mel estate, where the descendants of these heritage vines grow in gravel and loam soils similar to their ancestors’ native Bordeaux. Cold-fermented and aged in stainless-steel tanks, this wine is blended with 1% Sémillon and 1% Gewürztraminer. The resulting clean, crisp aromas of kiwi and lime combine with a hint of white pepper; the palate is defined by white flowers arranged in a bouquet with lemon drops and sunshine-dappled tarragon. A chalky minerality comes in and stays through the finish
