Salinia North Coast White Blend 2011

/ML 750
Quantity Available: 0
Origin: California
Primary Varietal: White Blend
A blend of 70% Chardonnay, 20% Sauvignon and 10% Pinot Gris. The wine started off as a blend winemaker Kevin Kelley was making for himself, something to drink with meals while working in the cellar. Because he had no intention of releasing it, he experimented with his favorite barrels from the cold 2011 vintage. Each varietal was fermented separately on the skins, creating individual wines with subtlety and texture. But Kelley discovered that they played remarkably well together. He began bottling the wine to bring to friends and for guests who visited the cellar, and eventually decided to release it. The wine has a leesy haze, and Kelley chose to bottle it in clear glass so that drinkers could appreciate the copper-tinged color and opacity.
