2012 WHITE4

 

Description

The Power of 4 – this wine is an estate blend combining grapes from our prestigious Huerhuero and Jardine vineyards located in the rolling hills of Paso Robles, where warm afternoons and cool evening breezes guide the grapes to perfect ripeness. The varieties used in this blend are very unique to Paso Robles and California’s Central Coast. Intended as a trial, we discovered that both the Vermentino and Verdelho have responded extremely well to the terroir of our Huerhuero Vineyard.

Each variety was hand harvested at night in an effort to preserve the fruit’s fresh flavors. The grapes were pressed at the winery and fermented separately in stainless steel tanks. Different yeast strains were used to best express the characteristics of each variety, resulting in a wine with added dimensions. No malolactic fermentation occurred. After fermentation, the wines were blended based on trials and the individual character of the wines. The result is a synergistic blend that is more delicious than the sum of its parts; a compelling wine.

Enjoy now through 2016.
