    Crafted with mastery by Jesse Katz, the Aperture Sauvignon Blanc 2022 from Aperture Cellars is a testament to innovative winemaking and meticulous vineyard management. This vintage marks a special evolution in the blend, incorporating a notable 16% Sémillon, largely influenced by the recent integration of fruit from the Farrow Ranch.

    The color of the 2022 Aperture Sauvignon Blanc is a striking pale straw, touched with hints of green, suggesting a freshness that is evident upon the first pour. The wine exudes an enticing aroma of white peach and kumquat, combined with delicate layers of meringue and crème brûlée. These sweet notes are beautifully balanced by floral undertones, creating an olfactory experience that is both complex and delightful.

    Upon tasting, the wine reveals a medium-bodied palate that gracefully unfolds a spectrum of flavors, from candied citrus to exotic guava, and culminates with hints of vanilla pots de crème. The texture is luxuriously satiny, a perfect match for the vibrant acidity that maintains the wine’s focus. The finish is long and flavorful, leaving an impression of refined elegance and a desire to revisit the glass.

    The 2022 vintage is notable not only for its flavor profile but also for its production process. The blend includes estate-grown Sauvignon Musqué and Sémillon, harvested from Aperture’s own properties alongside Sauvignon Blanc from Farrow Ranch and the late-ripening Dry Stack Vineyard. This careful selection and timing of harvests are designed to optimize the aromatic and flavor potential of each varietal.

    Aperture wines, particularly the Sauvignon Blanc 2022, have garnered high praise, receiving 95 points from  Robert Parker of Wine Advocate and 94 points from Jeb Dunnuck. Critics highlight the wine’s elegant balance of savory and floral notes with a dynamic flavor profile that includes fresh herbs, grapefruit rind, beeswax, and quince. The inclusion of Sémillon has been lauded for adding depth and enhancing the textural complexity of the wine.

    This Sauvignon Blanc is vinified with attention to preserving its bright, fresh qualities. The grapes are whole cluster pressed and chilled, with fermentation initiated naturally and maintained under strict temperature controls. The wine matures in a mix of French oak and cement tanks, spending six months on lees with regular stirring to enhance its creamy texture and complex flavor profile.

    In summary, the Aperture Sauvignon Blanc 2022 from Aperture Winery is more than just a wine; it is a reflection of the careful stewardship of Aperture vineyards and the innovative spirit of its winemaker. This Aperture wines promises to delight connoisseurs and casual drinkers alike, showcasing the unique characteristics of its Sonoma County origins.

    Critical Acclaim

    Wine Advocate
    The 2022 Sauvignon Blanc is blended with 16% Sémillon and was matured mostly in French oak (33% new) plus a smaller portion of cement tank. It's the first vintage where so much Sémillon has been included—since acquiring Farrow Ranch in 2021, winemaker Jesse Katz has been able to add some of that site's fruit into his Aperture wines. It has alluring tones of white peach, kumquat, meringue and crème brûlée on the nose, plus wafts of floral perfume. The medium-bodied palate offers expansive flavors that segue from candied citrus to guava and vanilla pots de crème. It has a luxuriously satiny texture balanced by focused acidity and a very long, flavorful finish.

    Pale straw with green highlights, the 2022 Sauvignon Blanc is savory and floral with aromatics of fresh herbs, grapefruit rind, beeswax, and soft floral notes as well as delicate oak spice. Medium-bodied, it has an elegant, supple texture, ripe notes of quince, wet stones, and preserved citrus, and lifted saline. This is an exquisite wine to drink over the next 5-6 years.
