Hundred Acre Vineyard White Blend California Gold 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Jayson Woodbridge, innovator, creator and man of legend created Gold with one thing in mind, making a special time just a bit more special. No effervescence, frizzante or sparkling (except for the Gold) Unoaked Chardonnay with an aromatic blend of varietals with little flakes of 24K gold for the sun to as you raise your glass for that first sip. Crisp, inviting and shimmering, it’s as if the Gold actually harnesses the sun for you to ingest and brighten you inside and out! A perfect wine for anytime.

Hundred Acre is a Napa cult winery based in Rutherford in California. The wines are produced by Jayson Woodbridge with winemaker Philippe Melka. These highly sought-after wines are available through the winery’s (extensive) mailing list, with precious few of these small production wines via retail and auction. With prices starting well into the hundred dollar range, the winery specializes in 100% Cabernet Sauvignon with names like Precious and Deep Time. More recently, they began producing a Zinfandel (Dark Matter) and the Gold, an unoaked blend of Chardonnay, Viognier and Gewürztraminer that contains tiny gold flecks in the bottle. Woodbridge is also involved in the far more accessible Layer Cake brand.  Read less

As a purist, but not a snob, I was incredulous at first; but, you've got to look at the source of the wine. Jayson Woodbridge is a no holds barred type of guy; his need to produce the very best at any price point is his drive. Gold has been produced for each of us to celebrate the day with a great glass of clean white wine that happens to have 1 micron thick 24k Gold. Gold= pure, fresh with aromas of white peach, pineapple, mint and lichee; with honeysuckle and mint qualities carrying through the mouth. Finishes quite dry and persistent with a taste of fresh grapefruit. It is all about fruit purity!

Clean, crisp plus it looks great.
