This wine started out as an idea to create a Sancerre-inspired Sauvignon Blanc blend, but it quickly veered off in a new direction… first with a nod to the Chenin Blanc of the lower Loire River Valley, and then with a hint of New Zealand. It ended up being something unique: 56% barrel-fermented Chenin Blanc, 38% barrel-fermented Sauvignon Blanc and 6% skin-fermented Sauvignon Blanc. It’s not like anything ever made in Paso but is also not a textbook version of something from Sancerre, the lower Loire, or New Zealand. Hence the name….
