2020 Groth Sauvignon Blanc
2020 Groth Sauvignon Blanc Brilliant pale gold in color with fresh, vibrant aromas of grapefruit and tangerine, white peach, tropical mango, kiwi, and a hint of lemon blossom throughout. Opening with a sweet, juicy citrus acidity, the palate of this 2020 is richly weighted, showing layers of grapefruit, pear, lemon meringue, honeydew melon, and a crisp, refreshing lime zest finish.
It didn’t take the Groth family long to know that in buying the Oakville Estate, they had acquired a special property. The first recognition that immediately put Groth on the map and confirmed their credentials was when Robert Parker of the Wine Advocate gave the Groth 1985 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon the distinction of being the first 100-point wine from the United States. This sparked feverish demand for the wine.
The Groth family’s commitment to quality continues to draw recognition. Groth wines have been ranked on Wine Spectator’s prestigious Top 100 Wines list eight times in the winery’s history, most recently in 2019, when the 2016 Reserve Cabernet was No. 4.
Since Day One, the Groth family has been present in the business every day, and that is not likely to change in the future. Today, second-generation family member Suzanne Groth is custodian of the business, and for sure, there will be other Groth family members who follow her. Suzanne shares her parents’ love for Oakville, Napa Valley and the unique agricultural preserve that has been developed here.
