The Moraga Bel Air White, first produced in 1998, is from 1.2 acres of Sauvignon Blanc grapes grown entirely on the Bel Air estate. Whether from warm or cool vintages, the wine is distinguished by remarkable floral notes that resemble honeysuckle. Flavors that lean toward stone fruits such as apricot and peach are also important and consistent components of Moraga White.
Additionally, what distinguishes this wine year after year is not only its reliably intense aromatics and flavors, but also a structure that is built around layers of minerality and a strong backbone of natural acid that allows the wine to both compliment a host of dishes and age remarkably well. At up to and beyond ten years from vintage, the Estate Whites shows a distinct liveliness and nuance and intensity, something often difficult to find in many California wines.
