We love to be creative and to blend wines with intention. Baby Blue Blanc walks a tightrope that delivers the best qualities of Sauvignon Blanc, bright acidity and freshness, yet tempered by the addition of Viognier and Semillon in order to enhance the texture, something that remains elusive to most Sauvignon Blanc bottled on its own. Here the subtlest shade of pale straw radiates with a purity that seems to first absorb and then reflect back all the light in the room. The sensory dance continues with pristine aromas of fresh-squeezed lime, grapefruit, chamomile tea and a delicate bouquet of exotic flowers, all seamlessly integrated into a fragrant and harmonious whole. And then we taste the wine and there is a burst of bright citrus, and an ensemble of exotic kiwi, tangy gooseberry and subtle layers of lemongrass. However, what most distinguishes this wine from its brethren is the creamy texture. Sauvignon Blanc has a place at the table all year long. Spring and summer come to mind first with fresh veggies, fruits, ceviche, oysters, grilled white fish, poultry and anything else light and refreshing. And then the wonderful truth is that fall and winter also provide ample opportunity to celebrate this delightful varietal. The trick is to seek purity and balance in your winter flavors, where you taste each component on the plate, such as herbed potatoes, fried chicken, whole baked fish and the like, all hearty but well delineated. Fun to explore all year round!

The 2021 Baby Blue Blanc, which includes the addition of 7% Semillon and 3% Viognier, reveals fragrant notes of orange blossom, lemon curd, and honeydew melon. There is a rounded mouthfeel up front, with underlying grapefruit citrus and green almond that cleans up on the finish. Drink it over the next year or two.
