Illumination White Wine

Created with the same philosophy as Quintessa, Illumination presents the same complexity to stand as a worthy partner to our estate blend. Agustin and Valeria Huneeus saw the potential of Sauvignon Blanc to be transparent to 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 2019 Illumination  is expressive and alive with complex aromas, bright flavors, and beautiful texture. 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.

“Generous and plump, with fleshy flavors of ripe melon, peach and apricot, accented by crisp citrus, honeysuckle and spice details, gaining momentum on the finish.”

“Medium-bodied and wonderfully elegant, it delivers vivacious citrus and gentle herbs layers with a racy backbone and long mineral-laced finish.”

Vintage Notes

2016

“Full-bodied with an oily yet wonderfully tangy palate. Lots of tropical fruit, fresh acidity and a long finish. So much intensity but very driven.”

-James Suckling
