Blend: 100% Sauvignon Blanc
Production: 500 cases
Realm Cellars’ unerring dedication to perfection has seen their portfolio of Single-Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignons reach true ‘Napa First Growth’ status. From Beckstoffer Dr. Crane to Moonracer, they are some of the Valley’s elite wines and as collectible as it gets. There is one Single-Vineyard wine at Realm Cellars that stands apart for being the rarest of them all (only 500 cases produced), and representing the Estate’s only white cuvée – Realm Cellars Fidelio Sauvignon Blanc.
The fruit is sourced from Realm’s Farella Estate Vineyard in Coombsville. Winemaker Benoit Touquete used three different vessels (and materials) to age Fidelio – demi-muid neutral oak barrels, concrete eggs, and terracotta amphoras. Each vessel contributes to Fidelio’s unique layers, complexities, and depth.
Benoit thinks the Fidelio 2022 has the freshness of Dagueneau and the richness of Château Mouton-Rothschild’s Ygrec – the best of both worlds, and we thoroughly agree. It is a wine that captures perfectly the ethos of Realm – richness and freshness, at the same time.
