A pretty floral, herbal white that's not grassy. Terrific blend of these white grapes in just the right proportions. Zingy, crisp and refreshing.

Reviews and Ratings

All of these grapes were grown in the light soils of the Black Sage Bench. All were harvested very ripe with nicely balanced acidity. These grapes typically have very tannic and bitter skins so the clusters were pressed whole to minimize any maceration and leaching of bitterness into the juice. The fermentations were all conducted very cool in stainless steel tanks using Prise de Mousse and DV10 yeasts. No lees contact was allowed post-fermentation; the wine was simply allowed to settle and clarify and was immediately prepared for bottling. Simple.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
