This stunning blend of Tocai Friulano, Ribolla Gialla and Chardonnay, is lively, intense, and perfectly balanced. Medium to full in body with notes of nuttiness, Meyer lemon, a hint of spice on the nose. On the elegant, lush palate you’ll encounter touches of honey, citrus and creaminess that sync together nicely in the glass. The flavors are well-balanced with nice richness but nothing overwhelming. The wine was aged mostly in neutral barrels, some stainless and concrete egg.
WS 97 POINT RATING: “Made from 53% Tocai Friulano, 39% Ribolla Gialla and 8% Chardonnay, this is fresh and floral in tones of lemon rind, white flower and green apple. Fermented in both French oak and stainless steel, it is structured yet vibrant, gorgeously aromatic and remarkably long-lasting on the palate.”
Winery Notes: “Our flagship white wine blend sourced from small vineyards around the Napa Valley. The three grape varietals, Tocai, Ribolla and Chardonnay, are harvested separately, and fermented independently in French Oak and stainless steel tanks until blending six weeks before bottling. The Tocai and Ribolla build the aroma and flavor profile of the wine, while the Chardonnay adds to the wine’s structure. The wine is fresh and subtle and fulfills the promise set forth years ago to bottle memorable white wines, unique among the whites of California.”
