2017 Variations on a Theme

71% Sauvignon Blanc • 29% Marsanne

We’re all about variations on the theme of white wines, but this wine is also a blend of eight different variations on Sauvignon Blanc and Marsanne. It is also a variation on the traditional White Bordeaux blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, with Marsanne substituting for Semillon in this case. We are not aware of anyone else producing this particular blend, but it certainly seemed to work, with the richness and mouthfeel of Marsanne complementing the acidity and aromatics of Sauvignon Blanc.
