2021 Stagiaire 'Sufficiently Whelming' White Blend

2021 Stagiaire 'Sufficiently Whelming' White Blend

Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay from vines planted in the 40s at Lolonis in Redwood Valley. Organic and dry farmed. In a year with lots of issues due to drought, this fruit benefitted a ton from it. I had never seen such flavorful and developed skins at a low sugar level before, and the fermentation was very smooth. The Sav Blanc usually gets some botrytis here, but there wasnt any for this dry season. Its life started in stainless and then it aged in used barrels for 9 months. The wine opens tight and
flinty but relaxes into opulent citrus and tropical fruit. Think of a Capri Sun commercial where everyone is like liquid cool and doing sports and stuff. unwinding a bit more and more each time I try it. By the time it arrives to you, it should be spectacular and I think will reward some patience as well. I honestly wish I could have left this in
barrel longer but I’m already keeping a few wines in oak over vintage and I didn’t have any more space to store barrels.
