Cellar Craft Limited Edition
March 2012 Release

This wine without borders looks to 3 grapes originally from 3 French areas -- Bordeaux, Burgundy and the Loire Valley and uniquely blends them together in a new world fashion. The result is fabulous wine that still cannot be produced in their most important French Homelands.

Our exclusive blend is 37% Sauvignon Blanc from Lake County California; 35% California Semillon and 28% Chardonnay from California and Yakima Valley, Wash. Sauvignon Blanc from cooler climate Lake County establishes a base with gooseberry, citrus and grassy notes amid a bright framework. Semillon adds lushness, softness and fullness to the mouth feel. Chardonnay contributes apple, pear, melon and more structure. A flavor Reserve of Chenin Blanc is included for recommended, but optional, use. American toasted oak is included and is optional based upon personal preference. Our panel was evenly split.

This wine drinks well after 2 or 3 months and is best enjoyed with 18 months. The wine is a great social sipper and cries out for goat cheese as appetizers or in salads. Pairs nicely with fish, scallop, chicken, pork, veal, pasta and vegetable dishes. Serve lightly chilled.

This kit is $146.95 at Curds and Wine
