Fielding Estate Winery White Conception 2009
Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: March 5, February 26, September 11 and July 26.
Fielding Estate Winery White Conception 2009 Wine Review
So very pretty with aromas that would waft up from a field of daisies fluttering in the wind. This is the stuff of slow swinging hammocks in July and sun-bleached daydreams. Vibrant, refreshing and then, because you've finished it surprisingly quickly, you'll want a nap. 4.4/5

More Wine Reviews and Ratings
|This wine was inspired by the idea that there can be great synergy between the aromatics and energy of our aromatic whites, coupled with the richness and complexity of our barrel-fermented wines. Each component was vinified separately in both stainless steel and barrel and then blended to showcase their aromatic intensity, balance and richness. |
Pinot Gris (45%), Chardonnay (35%), Viognier (9%), Gewurztraminer (7%), and Sauvignon Blanc (4%).
Each varietal that comprised the final blend was vinified separately, and then selected in the desired proportion using a series of blind tastings. A small portion of the Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Viognier, and Gewurztraminer were barrel-fermented in a combination of neutral and newer French oak barrels. A small lot of Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier that was used from our Estate Vineyard were harvested together late in the season and co-fermented prior to blending. The final blend was kept with its lees right up until bottling, with scheduled battonage.
