Slingshot is a family effort shepherded by James Stewart, one of Napa Valley’s next generation winemakers—a group of young men and women assuming central roles in legacy wine businesses. James joins his peers in focusing on issues surrounding sustainability, preservation, labor practices and maintaining family-owned businesses. Slingshot reflects his ambition to preserve a vital family enterprise and practice meaningful land stewardship—both while producing unpretentious fine wine.
Sourced from the family's Juliana Vineyards and made by Caroline Stewart Guthrie, the Slingshot Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc displays everything you would expect from Sauvignon Blanc picked at the peak of its ripeness. The expansive aroma is highlighted with touches of mango, nectarine, and guava. The mouth-feel is luscious and layered balanced with fresh and crisp acidity. The flavors open with subtle lemon curd and vanilla later revealing bright notes of grapefruit and peach. To finish, the wine lingers on the palate with a clean and refreshing hint of cream.
