Illumination Sauvignon Blanc

Intrigued with making a white wine from Quintessa, Agustin Huneeus planted a small plot of Sauvignon Blanc at Quintessa estate in 2002. Intended for family and friends, this passion project soon appealed to guests of Quintessa and top sommeliers in the country. Today, this limited production wine is one of Napa Valley’s most sought after white wines.

Current Release

The 2016 Illumination is alive with aromatic complexity, beautiful texture and bright flavors. The fruit aromas of white peach, kiwi and guava interplay with fresh herbs, pink grapefruit and beeswax honey create an intricate bouquet. On the palate, the wine dances with stone fruit, lemon zest and a touch of minerality, followed by a fresh, flavorful finish.
