FROM THE PRODUCER
Our Bordeaux-style white blend is comprised of 65% Sauvignon
Blanc and 35% Sémillon. Beautiful, bright Sauvignon Blanc from
Smith-Cerne Vineyard in The Dalles, Oregon provides the backbone
to this elegant wine. Expressive and tropical Sémillon from our
Estate Vineyard adds depth and complexity to the final cuvée,
where the exciting marriage between the “new” and “old” world
are revealed. The Sauvignon Blanc fermented for about 40 days in
stainless steel at cool temperatures, while the Sémillon fermented in
neutral French oak for about 4 months.
On the nose you will find vivid aromas of honeydew melon, ripe
peach, dry grass and dried guava. The prominent mineral element on
the bouquet makes it more appealing and versatile, with noticeable
hints of wet rock and chalk. The mouthfeel is clean and bright,
with flavors of ripe stone fruit and subtle tropical fruits lingering
throughout the palate. The pleasing sensation of “sweeter” fruit in
the mid-palate is well supported by lively acidity in the finish. This
wine will be a favorite on a hot summer’s day on the patio, but will
be even better when paired with basically anything from the sea.
My favorites are oysters, crab cakes, or grilled halibut. Cheers!
