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 2018 Illumination  is a complex, sophisticated and vibrant wine. Floral aromas of honeysuckle, jasmine and white rose complement the notes of white peach, Meyer lemon, pink grapefruit and kiwi. In the mouth, a beautiful tension and fine acidity provides brightness to its creamy texture and flavors of juicy mandarin, guava and wet stone. Tension and minerality prevail through the long and elegant finish.
