AVETA, named for a water goddess often depicted carrying fruit. It is a fitting moniker to express the vibrant fruit flavors and minerality of our Sauvignon Blanc which is crafted from fruit grown in the alluvial soils of our estate vineyards as well as other exceptional Napa Valley sites.Grapes from Rancho Chimiles vineyard in Wooden Valley (32%), Ryan in Oak Knoll (18%), Bravo Zulu in Oak Knoll (12%) and Solari in Calistoga (11%) form the backbone of this wine. Oak Knoll fruit brings spicy peach, guava and grapefruit notes to the mix while the Rancho Chimiles Sauvignon grapes lend racy citrus, tropical fruit and mineral notes to the wine. Our long-time grower Terry Wilson farms Sauvignon Blanc and Sauvignon Musque at Rancho Chimiles for this wine. The juice was fermented at cool temperatures in a mix of stainless steel (33%) and neutral French oak barrels (67%). The wine was aged on light lees for seven months and was stirred every two weeks, providing some roundness to the wine’s texture.

The Stag's Leap Wine Cellars AVETA Sauvignon Blanc white wine is fragrant and expressive with aromas of grapefruit, green papaya and lemongrass with a hint of tangerine. The wine has a round, flavorful mouthfeel that leads to lively and long finish with a nice touch of acidity. Try pairing AVETA with fresh fish ceviche, crab cakes or grilled oysters with mignonette sauce.

Origins

While Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars began making Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc in the early 1980s, 2013 was the first vintage of AVETA, named for a water goddess often depicted carrying fruit. It is a fitting moniker to express the vibrant fruit flavors and minerality of our Sauvignon Blanc which is crafted from fruit grown in the alluvial soils of our estate vineyards as well as other exceptional Napa Valley sites.
