St. Supéry Sauvignon Blanc  2017

Napa Valley, CA


Cost: $18 (average)

Jess - 3.5/5

Rating: 90 (Wine Spectator)

Travis - 4/5

We chose this wine for one of our wine tastings where we were comparing oaked vs. unoaked white wines. It’s a decent price point for such a highly rated wine.

Wine Wednesday Review: St. Supery Sauvignon Blanc

Winemaker Notes:

    This radiant Sauvignon Blanc presents with pale yellow hues and glinting hints of green. Pristine estate fruit is showcased on the nose, where this wine gives generously of pink grapefruit and lime citrus aromas with a subtle thread of passion fruit and fennel. In the cellar, minimal intervention yields a vivid expression of freshness on the palate with flavors of grapefruit and lime zest zinging through the finish to create a wine of agility, brightness and devotion to its essence.

Wine Notes:

  • Wine maker: Michael Scholz
  • Winery: Dollarhide Estate Vineyard
  • Alcohol: 13.5%
  • Varietal/Blend: 100% Sauvignon Blanc
  • Fermenting/Aging: Stainless Steel

Tasting Notes:

Pale straw, light bodied white with a nice crispness.  Aromas of green apple, apricot, grapefruit, and lime. Though it definitely has an acidic quality, it is on the sweeter side, likely do to the hot summer conditions in 2017 that caused an early harvest of the grapes.

This bottle of sauvignon blanc is relatively easy to find if it sounds like what you’re looking for. It would pair well with salmon, shrimp (especially with a creamy sauce), or spicy barbecue. Another option would be to use it as a base for a white sangria with some peaches and apples!

Travis really enjoyed this wine, which is saying something since he  doesn’t often find a white he enjoys. I personally would have preferred something just a bit sweeter.

I love all things wine: drinking it, learning about how it's made, visiting where it's made, pairing with foods! I'm naturally curious, so back in 2013 during my first trip to Europe when I tasted my first glass of fantastic Rioja, I was hooked and had to start learning all I could on the subject. After a long time of friends asking me for wines to try or activities to add to their vacation itineraries, I decided to start a blog to write it all down. And that is how Wine, Dine, and Roam began!

  1. From your comments i would try this wine. I probably would be with Jess, I like the sweeter ones. Adding fruit would make it sweeter, maybe strawberries
