Refreshing aromas of Bartlett pears, bananas, & ripe cantaloupe will quickly capture your senses
2022 White Wine Blend ‘The Other’
Estate Grown, Lodi Appellation
Making a truly wonderful wine begins with making sure our vines struggle just a bit, through techniques like deficit irrigation, to help concentrate the fruit flavors. Crop thinning and leaf pulling also help insure full and proper ripening. We HAND PICK into small bins to keep the fruit intact for its trip to the winery.
The 2022 blend consists of 65% Chardonnay, 25% Sauvignon Blanc, and 10% Viognier. Once we have received the fruit at the winery, we keep each varietal separate through the entire fermentation and aging process, so each grape can fully express its true character.
One is immediately struck by the vibrant color and refreshing aromas of pineapple, guava, satsuma mandarins and mangos. Exotic flavors of banana, Bartlett pear, guava and a pineapple-banana split with a coconut finish. Or better yet, a piña colada in a wine bottle with a long, totally seductive finish that is rich and mouth filling. Experience this “tropical delight” with almond crusted halibut and sautéed vegetable medley.
