Steve Matthiasson has been one of the most in-demand vineyard managers in Napa for many years while also growing his own winery. This blend of roughly 50 percent Sauvignon Blanc, 25 percent Ribolla Gialla, 20 percent Semillon, and 5 percent Tocai Friulano is intended to create an archetypal white wine that gives everything one could want, richness and lightness, complexity and focus. The fruit was very lightly whole-cluster-pressed. All four varieties were blended immediately upon dryness, racked and returned onto the lees for aging until bottling. 20% new Boutes barrels, with no stirring. To preserve all of the bright acidity the wine was prevented from going through malolactic fermentation. This is one that you will want to hold on to for a great meal of creamy pasta or lobster and you can even have the meal be a few years from now. For sure this is the blockbuster wine of the shipment.
