Riverain Vineyards is excited to announce the release of our 2018 Riverain Sauvignon Blanc from Gamble Vineyards in Yountville (with Tom Gamble’s now designated Riverbound Vineyard). As many of our friends and loyal customers are aware, we have had limited production on this wine over the past 2 years and it sold out immediately. This year, due to popular demand, we have increased our lease on the vineyard and we will have approximately 290 cases of this amazing wine. Even with this increase in production, we have already pre-sold nearly 50% of our production from our tasting room. Before it’s all gone, we are going to offer this wine for 7 days only on a strict allocation to our mailing list. This offer runs June 5th – June 12th, and when it is gone, it is gone!
The amazing Riverbound Vineyard (formally Gamble Vineyard) in Yountville became available to us after 5 years of twisting the arm of friend and vineyard owner Tom Gamble to get some of his fruit. This vineyard has been family owned for decades and is home to some of the best Sauvignon Blanc in all of Napa Valley.
Our esteemed winemaker, Thomas Brown, kept a watchful eye on the vineyard and the fermentation of the 2018 vintage, and the wine has enjoyed almost 10 months in stainless steel barrels as well as neutral French oak barrels. The wine has a wonderful roundness while still maintaining the classic Sauvignon Blanc flavors of gooseberry, lemon, lime and a bit of a fennel note. We really like the fruit and acid balance in the wine. Modest alcohol and dense flavors make this perfect for warm weather and summer fare (we especially like it with a shellfish platter). Because of high demand and the practicalities of shipping, we have decided to simply sell these in six packs or full case quantities (12 bottles). The cost per six pack case is $228 ($38 a bottle) or we are offering a full case discount of over 20% off at $360 ($30 a bottle), plus any applicable tax. Shipping is a flat rate of $25 in CA and $40 outside of CA for any order up to 12 bottles. We are including cold chain as part of any ground shipping when needed with each order to make sure you can enjoy these for the summer.
