White Blend California - 2020

This wine is our conception of a mythical “ideal” wine...a California wine with a spiritual connection to Friuli, Italy, but also drawing inspiration from the great whites of the Loire, Burgundy, Graves, Alsace, the Rhone, old-school Napa, and Sonoma... the list of great whites that inspire us goes on and on, and it is all wrapped up in this wine. This wine is an attempt at getting at the core of what white wine is all about, the archetypal “white wine”— thus the name.

It’s a very intentional blend of four varieties from two vineyards. The blend isroughly 50% Sauvignon blanc, 25% Ribolla gialla, 20% Semillon, and 5% Tocai friulano. The Sauvignon blanc brings a clean, fresh citric acidity and tropical character. We use the Ribolla gialla to bring seashell minerality, nuttiness, and structure to the blend. The Semillon contributes viscosity and waxiness that adds gravity and weight. A touch of Tocai friulano adds spicy aromatic notes.

The acidity and fruit-forward aromas and flavors balance the rich character of the lees and a faint backdrop of creamy oak. There is an interplay in the wine between its lightness and richness and focus and complexity.
