Coming from 64% Napa County and 36% Sonoma County, the 2016 Sauvignon Blanc Illumination is scented of grapefruit, white peaches and elderflowers with just a hint of dried herbs and baking bread. Medium-bodied with great intensity, it delivers bags of refreshing citrus and stone fruit flavors with a good, long finish. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

The 2016 Illumination shows off the quality of the winemaking team at Quintessa. Fermented in stainless steel, French oak, and concrete egg fermenters, this is light straw and translucent in the glass. Upon opening, this shows huge personality with alluring minerality and a fresh, crisp profile. Notes of lemon, citrus, melon and white peach are underscored by stone-like elements and refreshing herbal tones. A precise beam of acidity leads to a mouthwatering finish. Those looking to balance the summer time heat will find a welcoming oasis in this elegant Sauvignon Blanc.
