2015 Blanco

The 2015 Blanco is a limited-edition wine crafted exclusively for our wine club members and tasting room visitors. This unconventional blend of Chardonnay and Muscat comes from our estate Margarita Vineyard, and specifically from vines planted to soils of granite and rocky alluvium. These stony soils, combined with cold fermentation and aging in stainless steel, yield a lusciously textured wine with a bright, fruit-forward character. Only 330 cases produced.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2015 Blanco bursts from the glass with bright aromas of stone fruits, banana and orange blossom. A clean, quenching texture delivers flavors of peach, nectarine and lime with a suggestion of tropical fruit. The finish starts tangy and brisk, but ends with a lingering touch of viscous roundness.
Winemaker Notes
The Muscat block was picked relatively early on September 23 to capture lively acidity and bright fruit flavors. The Chardonnay was picked three weeks later. Both lots were gently pressed prior to cold fermentation in stainless steel tanks to preserve natural fruit freshness in the wine. The two lots were then blended in January and returned to stainless steel tanks for further integration and aging prior to bottling. In the final blend, the Muscat provides a foundation of high-toned fruit, while the Chardonnay adds a measure of richness and complexity.
Food Pairing Notes
This is a wine to be enjoyed in its youth. Suggested pairings include classic summer picnic fare, cilantro lime grilled chicken, filet of sole, and mixed citrus green salad.
