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.

“We approach Illumination with the same care and attention as we do Quintessa, with the aim of capturing the best qualities of our grapes and crafting a wine of harmony and balance. ”

Rebekah Wineburg, Quintessa and Illumination Winemaker

On the nose, notes of grapefruit, kumquat, and guava are layered with floral notes of peach blossom, fresh herbs and hay, creating an immediate sensation of freshness. On the palate, the wine continues with flavors of stone fruit, lemon zest, and a distinctive creamy yet mineral texture. This wine is precise and bright, with a fresh and flavorful finish.
