Following its inaugural 2002 vintage release, Robin Lail’s Georgia single-handedly revolutionised Sauvignon Blanc in California.
Georgia was inspired by her winemaker Philippe Melka’s time working at Château Haut Brion, where he fell in love with Haut Brion Blanc. They were among the first to use the same winemaking approach in Napa to produce a Sauvignon Blanc of the same exceptional quality and ageworthy style, as good as any other in the world.
When Robert Parker famously described the Georgia as “California’s most complex and multi-dimensional Sauvignon Blanc” Robin and Philippe’s instincts were proved right.
This is a wine characterised by energy, richness and remarkable depth, always differentiated by the nuances of each vintage.
