2019 Glass Cat Sauvignon Blanc

The wine that started it all! Elegant & Smooth - 100% Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc.

Fluent Wine Company 2019 Glass Cat Sauvignon Blanc

In the story Land of Oz by L. Frank Baum, a magician, in an effort to demonstrate his power, brought a glass figurine of a cat to life with the hope that it would chase mice for the magician’s wife. The Glass Cat was transparent except for its ruby heart, pink brain and emerald green eyes. Much like our Sauvignon Blanc, the Glass Cat turned out to be cool, reserved and extremely vain. While not very good at catching mice, the Glass Cat incessantly roamed its world acquiring intimate knowledge of the terrain for future story characters. Similarly, we have a magician (our winemaker) who has turned our Glass Cat into a cool, reserved and extremely vain offering with the hope that new characters will enjoy the beauty and experience of the Glass Cat.

The elegant and smooth 100% Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc Glass Cat is the wine that started this exciting venture. It is easy to drink and produces fond memories which serve as a welcome break for your palate where you can look forward to perhaps a fantastic meal or maybe just a relaxed moment to reflect on your day.

2019 The Glass Cat

2019 had copious rainfall which provided plenty of moisture in the soil for a wonderful growing season. The growing season was near perfect with only a short heat spike in mid-August. The seasonally consistent morning fog allowed for a longer hang time while the warmer afternoons offered time for the fruit to mature without being extreme. Joe picked the grapes the first week of September.

Tasting notes:  Our 2019 Glass Cat Sauvignon Blanc has a layered aroma and texture. It is silky and sexy on the palate and complete with a long drawn-out finish which makes you want to come back for more. The longer veraison gives you mouthwatering acidity and a weighty feel with lifted fruit: think Meyer lemon and Asian pear with an interesting mix of fresh stone fruit and even a little guava that is both vibrant and fresh. The Glass Cat is aged in new and neutral French oak for nine months and in bottle for six months. We feel this vintage has an interesting complexity and we cannot wait to share it with you.

The Glass Cat is offered in 3 bottle packs at $125/bottle
