Atalon, based in Calistoga, Napa Valley specialises in small production of several grape varieties. The philosophy of the winery is to blend fruit from carefully selected and dramatically different vineyard sites across Napa Valley, from the fertile clay soils in the heart of the valley to the rocky, mineral-laden soils of the Napa mountains. Each wine captures the varied textures and contours of the Napa landscape. The winemaker is Brian Kosi.
Lively and bright with aromas of citrus blossom, grapefruit and lemongrass. Its intense flavour bursts with refreshing fruit on the palate. White peach, grapefruit, and tropical fruit notes are followed by balanced minerality that is complemented by a long, rich finish (Ref: Atalon.com)
Enjoy with oysters, shrimp, scampi, grilled fish or even fried chicken. It is also great on its own with family and friends.
Robert Pusker, Wine Advocate, 2019: 95/91% Sauvignon Blanc, 90 points.
