Illumination White Wine
CREATED WITH THE SAME PHILOSOPHY AND PRECISION AS QUINTESSA, Illumination shares equal complexity and stands as a worthy partner to our estate blend. Agustin and Valeria Huneeus saw the potential of Sauvignon Blanc to be transparent to its terroir and planted a plot of the variety at Quintessa in 2002. Today, this limited production wine is one of Napa Valley’s most sought after white wines.
Winery Exclusive Release
AVAILABLE EXCLUSIVELY THROUGH THE WINERY, the 2021 Illumination is a fresh and fragrant wine, with an intensity of flavor and compelling texture and drive. Notes of grapefruit, Meyer lemon, and white peach provide tension, while botanical floral aromas of orange blossom, quince, lemongrass, and thyme bring complexity and interest. A bright and lively mouthfeel, with flavors of citrus, hints of elderflower, and a distinct minerality are balanced by a creamy texture and a medium-bodied, layered, and persistent finish.
