Karl D. Wente, Fifth Generation Winemaker: “Our Louis Mel Sauvignon Blanc is harvested when the sugars and acidity in the grapes are perfectly balanced and optimal for our finished wine. The grapes are picked cold before sunrise and brought to the winery where they are gently pressed, cold settled, and then cold fermented. All of these steps ensure that we are extracting and maintaining only the best of
flavors from our estate grown Sauvignon Blanc grapes.”
This wine has its name from French immigrant Louis Mel, who brought Sauvignon Blanc cuttings from Chateau d'Yquem to plant them in the Livermore Valley. Wente strives for a fresh and exotic-fruity Sauvignon Blanc style with this wine, its flavors reminds of lemon zest and grapefruit, this wine is a perfect match to summer dishes.
