Runabout White (2016)

Runabout White (2016)

This five grape blend has a little bit of something for everyone in it, and contains all of the white grapes grown at our estate vineyard. Technically-speaking, it’s the second press of our grapes – the first press going to the varietal wines – that we set aside specifically for a white blend. The 2016 vintage is a substantial wine owing both to the heat of the vintage as well as the 40% Chardonnay and 30% Gewurztraminer that make up the majority of the finished wine.
