Oak Valley shines at Platter with two 5 stars
We’re very pleased to be awarded two prestigious 5 stars for our Oak Valley Fountain of Youth 2017 and Oak Valley Groenlandberg Pinot Noir 2016.
Fountain of Youth Sauvignon Blanc 2017.Our first wine produced on Oak Valley was a Sauvignon Blanc in 2003 which went on to claim 4½ stars on debut. Fast forward 14 years and our Fountain of Youth 2017 has evolved into something slightly different from its earlier counterpart…an abundance of fruit, softer and more approachable in its youth. Our delayed ripening allows our Sauvignon grapes to mature longer on the vine which leads to better flavor development. And, unlike its predecessor, the more you drink the younger you feel.
The Groenlandberg range embodies our vision to create outstanding Chardonnay and Pinot Noir that express the uniqueness of our mountain vineyard sites. The Groenlandberg has a major influence on fruit development by casting its shadow over the vines and directing cold air down the valley at night. The Pinot grapes are hand-picked from Block 9, 430m above sea-level, on vines planted in 2001. Cool, whole bunch ferments with gentle punch downs and careful use of French oak have created a delicate feminine style Pinot that truly expresses place.
