Product Notes

Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Aveta Sauvignon Blanc is a crisp, refreshing white wine that showcases the unique terroir of California's Napa Valley. The wine is named after the Roman goddess of the morning dew, Aveta, and reflects the freshness and vitality of this early morning dew. The nose is bright and lively, with aromas of citrus, peach, and tropical fruits, followed by a clean and refreshing palate that bursts with flavors of grapefruit, guava, and passionfruit. The wine has a beautiful mineral acidity that carries through to a long, persistent finish. This wine is perfect for sipping on a warm summer day or pairing with light salads and seafood dishes.

Tasting Notes

Delicious Sauvignon Blanc, all lemons and butter, from this legendary Napa Valley winery: a mouthful of mango, blackcurrant and gooseberry, with a citrus bouquet enhanced by a hint of herb.

About the Winery

Stag's Leap Wine Cellars

Located in the Stags Leap district of Napa Valley in California, the Stags Leap Wine Cellar was established during 197o by William Winiarski. It was during this year that Winiarski purchased 44 hectares of land for cultivating vines on it.  The results were great because the vines represented the unique regional flavour and character of the Napa Valley soil.

Petite Sarah and Alicante Bouschet were initially planted in small lots here, but later, they were replaced by universal varietals such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Within 2 years of inception (1972), the label released its first vintage, with the name SLV (Stag Leap Vineyards). During the subsequent year, SLV’s winery work got completed.

The winemaking philosophy at Stags Leap Wine Cellars is to create a perfect balance between the softness and structure of the grapes, so that the resultant wines are complex, intense and unique. The vineyards are considered to be the backbone of the wines crafted here. The SLV and Fay vineyards are part of the same estate, but they produce distinct wines because of the difference in their terroirs.

The Stags Leap Vineyards were planted in 1970 and have soils that are of the volcanic type. This lends lots of spice, intensity, long life and uniqueness to the fruits grown here. The Fay Vineyards, established by wine-enthusiast Nathan Fay in 1961, contain alluvial-rich soil. This enables the place to grow fruits that are fruity, aromatic and soft. This was the place where the district’s first Cabernet Sauvignon vines were planted.

SLV’s wines are classified into three broad categories – Estate Collection, Napa Valley Collection and Winery Exclusives. SLV’s wines are known for their high degree of authenticity. Each of the wine bottles has been assigned a bubble code security system to ensure that the seal cannot be removed at any stage.
