2011 WMS Bin #4 White

2011 WMS Bin #4 White

Vine Club only wine - This is a selection of our favorite fruit from Nevaeh Vineyard in 2011.  Since in 2011 we did not have the quantity we deemed suitable for our Nevaeh bottling we were able to put together this killer Winemakers Select wine.  100% Nevaeh Vineyard.

$450.00/Case

About This Wine:
This wine is what replaced our Nevaeh White in 2011. Given that our very best fruit was at a premium for the vintage we decided it was best to give it all to you. With our multiple passes through our Chardonnay and Viognier to try to get the ripest fruit possible each day we were able to have several lots to choose from. In the end we were able to come up with only 100 cases of what we thought was certainly a profound example of Nevaeh Vineyard. With that in mind we opted not to label as Nevaeh and release to all, but to make it one of our Bin wines only for you as a Vine Club member.

The wine is made just like all our Single Vineyard wines with minimal handling and aiming for the best expression of our great sites. Indigenous yeast, no enzymes, fining, or anything other than grapes really (67% Viognier, 33% Chardonnay to be exact). It was fermented and aged in Jupilles Forest (French) Oak and aged 10 months with bi-weekly lees stirring to help build body and depth. The wine was then put together, bottled up and waited for now to be enjoyed.

The aromas of this wine are complex and intense. A great marriage of floral notes, stone fruit and minerality. The palate is medium bodied but loaded with character showing fruit and minerality once again as it is all held together with a vibrant acidity. It is also a great food wine with some seared Crab cakes with a citrus Beurre Blanc or if you are into the season try it out with some Butternut Squash soup with a Fennel crème drizzle.
