Winemakers Note

Illumination by Quintessa, the best of both Napa Valley and Sonoma Valley Illumination is a new white wine produced by Quintessa. The name Illumination comes from the vibrant color of the grapes at harvest, which the family described as illuminating the Quintessa estate. The Huneeus family believes in the beauty and depth of Sauvignon Blanc and the art of blending. They chose to put a detail from the Book of Kells, an illuminated manuscript, onto the label as a reflection of the precision, art, and beauty behind the wine. Illumination by Quintessa is a wine of true character and complexity. The grapes, from Napa Valley and Sonoma Valley, are handpicked and gently whole-cluster pressed, and the juice is fermented with mostly native yeast in a variety of vessels. The 2022 vintage Weather conditions The 2022 vintage illustrated our vineyard’s strength and adaptability. Ten inches of rain in winter’s dormant season gave the vines respite and provided a strong start to the growing season. A late, cool spring slowed growth, allowing the vines to refocus their energy on developing clusters. An ideal start to summer produced depth of flavor and texture while a warm end to the season sped up ripening. The combination of warm days, cool nights, and foggy mornings delivered fresh fruit character, perfect acidity and brightness. Tasting notes Fresh, vibrant and floral with succulent citrus notes, the 2022 Illumination offers textured weight with juicy yellow apple, wax melon and citrus blossom notes. The palate surprises and delights with a fresh and lively mouthfeel that offers energetic acidity with even ripeness. This white blend will remain elegant for years to come.
