      Winery Notes
      Wente Vineyards Louis Mel Sauvignon Blanc is named after French emigrant, Louis Mel, who traveled to the western United States in the 1870’s seeking a place to make wines to rival the great French Crus. He found the ideal home in the Livermore Valley. Acquiring Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon cuttings from the Marquis de Lur-Saluces, owner of the famed Chateau Y’quem, he planted them in his vineyards. The Wente family acquired the Louis Mel estate in the 1930’s, where the descendants of these vines, located in the southern Livermore Valley of the Central Coast, live in gravel and loam soils that are similar to the terroir of their native Bordeaux.

      Tasting Notes
      Wente Vineyards 2021 Louis Mel Sauvignon Blanc displays a youthful exuberance that gives this vintage a lot of appeal. It is as lively as it is polished with varietally-typical aromas of fresh honeydew melon, minerals, citrus and a hint of grass. Modestly weighted and beautifully composed, the wine displays a rich and rounded elegance that highlights its juicy, fruit-driven flavors of sweet Meyer lemon and candied citrus. This wine finishes with well-placed acidity and a lengthy finish.
