Monster Vineyards White Knuckle (2019) is a this-side-of-dry, juicy white wine blend of 37% Muscat, 26% Pinot Gris, 17% Viognier, 17% Chardonnay and 3% Verdejo fragrant with white florals, ripe apple, stone fruit, mandarin zest, fresh, silky and concentrated on the palate. Chill and enjoy with brunch Bennies, quiche and spring greens topped with mandarin sections. Tasted June 2022.
Produced from low yields and excellent quality, ripe fruit. Each varietal was fermented separately. After de-stemming, the berries were crushed, lightly pressed and the juice cold settled with fermentation kept below 16º C. The finished wines were then blended and bottled.
