Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes
The winemaker waitied 13 years to find the right vineyard and varietal to make this white wine blend, to be light and yet complex. With this second vintage of the Eponymous Propriety White, he is still using grapes from the same wonderful vineyard in Carneros but has changed the varietal makeup to Pinot Blanc and Riesling, which he thinks is even more enjoyable than the first vintage. Often wines made by fermenting different varietals together can be wonderful, due to the seamless harmony of fruit characteristics that can be achieved. The fruit was cofermented in stainless steel at cool temperatures for enhanced fruit intensity, before being transferred near the end of fermentation to smaller 75-gallon stainless steel drums for 6 months of sur lies aging, adding complexity and mouth feel. 

Serving Hints
An excellent apertif. A great match for both hot and cold appetizers, especially seafood, vegetable dishes, and Asian cuisine.
