The Family Series Winemaker’s Blend 2021 has a nose that shows beautiful notes of ripe yellow pears, baked apples, and sweet apricot blossoms. The fruit follows through to a palate that is textured and marked by a soft, but lingering acidity. There is a sense of minerality throughout the palate, which is a wonderful counterbalance for the richness derived from extended lees ageing.
Blending this wine is always a fun and interesting exercise. I aim to blend a wine of incredible balance and to constantly have a beautiful play between all the varieties. This wine is truly alive, and each cultivar will shine through more prominently at different stages of maturation, making for an engaging and thought-provoking drinking experience.
