ANDRONICUS SAUVIGNON BLANC
2013 Titus Vineyards
This is a full-throttle classically Napa expression of Sauvignon. A food friendly and yet surprisingly pure fruit-led style. Deliciously juicy drinking the obvious partner to a Napa Cab from this great grower in the heart of the valley near Saint Helena. L&S (May 2017)
*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or buy 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified (as a full pack) to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Quite rich and a little heavy. Lots to get your teeth into but the Sauvignon aroma is a little buried. Hot end. Drinking range: 2015 - 2016 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com (Aug 2015)
The fifth vintage of Sauvignon Blanc from Titus Vineyards is crystal clear with a pale gold hue. The nose is pronounced with notes of white peach, apricots, sweet melon, lemon, and lime, and star jasmine. This sipper has crisp, refreshing acidity and alluring flavours that match the aromas along with intense white flowers and subtle honeysuckle. Melons and dried flowers add a pleasant touch to the everlasting finish. Enjoy this wine now and over three years from vintage. Winemaker's notes
Titus vineyards is a small property with vineyards in two distinct areas of the Napa valley, mostly around their sparkling new winery on the Silverado trail, just west of St Helena. After much faffing about the right time and place to build their own winery, they finally decided to grub up some vines in a less productive corner of one of their vineyards. Here they have built the most beautiful and perfectly efficient, state of the art winery. They cut the ribbon just in time to do their first crush in September 2015 and we look forward to seeing the fruits of their labours very soon. Until now the team have used a nearby 'custom-crush' facility to put the Titus wines together, so things are looking up here and these are exciting times for the estate Titus is run by Eric and Philip Titus who took over the project from their father. Eric is in charge of the viticulture and Philip, who makes the wine at nearby Chappelet helps Titus' head-winemaker Stephen Cruzan with the vinification. The Titus wines form the core of the range, but their little brother 'Andronicus' is a fabulous addition, offering a taste of Napa at a great price. These are all beautifully made wines and after 15 years of working together we love how they offer drinkers top Napa Valley quality and style - without the often eye-watering price levels.
