Hundred Acre Vineyard White Blend California Gold 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Made entirely of un-oaked, non-malolactic Chardonnay (plus a few other aromatic white varietals for aromatics) the wine has been exposed to subfreezing temperatures to preserve mouth feel and aromatics. The stylistically identical wines receive a dosage of pure 24 karat gold before going into a breathtaking modern clear French glass bottle that has been fired with a pure 24 karat gold label.

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.
