    Winemaker's Notes:

    We can find clear examples of pears and apples, with both green and ripe nuances at once, white blossom which is hard to pin down and vague hints of honey and acacia. Since the grapes are from rather elderly viura vines, we can expect to find a strong mineral component which fills the mouth in length and fullness. The time spent in French oak is scarcely noticeable at the present time in the wine's evolution, perhaps disguised as a result of the powerful fruitiness, and at the most we can detect faint brush strokes of complex spices coming through.

    Blend: 90% Viura, 10% Malvasia

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2010 Blanco is a blend of 90% Viura and 10% Malvasia fermented in new French oak where it remained sur lie for 4 months. White flowers, mineral, melon, and mineral notes inform the nose of this tasty, lively, impeccably balanced wine. This lengthy effort is an outstanding value for drinking over the next 3-4 years.
