Flint & Steel Sauvignon Blanc
Flint and Steel Sauvignon Blanc offers lively aromas of grapefruit, honeysuckle and lime followed by notes of minerality. Juicy nectarine and mango flavors flow across the palate. A steely backbone frames the fruit and delivers a refreshing wine well suited for sipping and pairing with food.
James Suckling– Fennel and sliced cooked apples. A light, sweaty note. Very varietal on the nose. Full-bodied, fruity and creamy. Some tinned fruit at the end, but enjoyable. Drink now. Screw cap.

In search of terroir that would produce a Sauvignon Blanc with great natural acidity and minerality, Flint & Steel turned to the southern end of Napa Valley, specifically the Oak Knoll District, where the Dry Creek alluvial fan forces vines to root themselves deeply into the earth in search of water and nurturance. The marine influence of San Pablo Bay (just 15 miles away) allows for diurnal swings of 35-40°F. The combinations of soil and climate foster full flavor maturity for Sauvignon Blanc – sugars rise in balance with acid levels due to the longer and gentler ripening period.
