    Winemaker's Notes:

    Named after Fred's son Nicolas, this is a blend of 75% Sauvignon Blanc and 25% Semillon, both from The Brander Vineyard. A classic example of a white Bordeaux. Aged sur-lie for in 50% new French oak barrels to add richness in flavor and silkiness to the texture while still showcasing firm balanced acidity. A perfect pairing with Santa Barbara's richer seafood - we're thinking lobster with lemon butter or grilled salmon.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A blend of Sauvignon Blanc, with one-quarter Semillon, this white blend was aged on the lees in oak barrels. It shows the balanced elegance this bottling by Brander usually displays. Entirely dry, with a crisp burst of acidity, its flavors are of citrus fruits, white flowers, vanilla, minerals and a touch of tart, New Zealand-style gooseberry. Great with roast pork or, if you can get it, wild boar.

    Wonderfully rich and fragrant, showing lemon curd, apricot marmalade and sweet pea notes, with hints of smoke that expand on the finish. To balance all the richness, a wonderfully bright, crisp acidity runs through the backbone. Drink now through 2014. 377 cases made.
