Two grapes define white Bordeaux: Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. The blending of the two is a bedrock of classic French white wine technique – when done right, the body and roundness of Semillon perfectly complements the acidity and herbal notes of Sauv Blanc, resulting in an elevated wine that’s far greater than the sum of its parts. North Coast winemakers tend to throw in lots of bells and whistles for red Meritage since it’s an obvious showcase for blending skills, and that approach applies to white Meritage as well. However, white productions are much rarer.
Lot 825 comes to us from one of the most critically acclaimed and awarded wineries in Rutherford, and given the winemaker’s previous tours of duty in both Bordeaux and Napa Valley, this Sauv Blanc/Semillon blend could not have been produced by anyone who was a more perfect fit for the job.
