At Shinn Estate Vineyards, growing a great wine is accomplished through gathering many diverse elements and combining them in harmony - Our vineyard practices are based on an ever-increasing diversity of plant material and beneficial insects. Our cover crop between vine rows contains as many as 25 species, while the vine plantings consist of numerous selections within each variety. We harvest and ferment our selections separately, blending them into a finished wine only after many blending trials. In the cellar, we use several French coopers for the barrels, and oak from several forests, all of which impart their individual aging characteristics to the Wine - From the vineyard floor to the bottle, our wines are the result of the diverse ecosystem we have created on the estate, coupled with meticulous winemaking and gentle aging in the cellar.

A wonderful refreshing blend- Brilliant clarity with a unique pewter hue (from the merlot blanc?). A bright bouquet of peaches & floral notes. The palate is clean, bright & full of zesty acidity with citrus flavors to follow. Some residual sugar & stone fruit follows in the finish.

A stainless steel blend. Clean vibrant citrus notes add complexity to the fresh and juicy finish.

This is an all stainless steel fermented winemakers blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Riesling, and Merlot Blanc showing a refreshing style with a splash of fruit followed with a zing of acidity. Clean vibrant citrus notes add complexity to the fresh and juicy finish. The bright, crisp flavor of this wine pairs beautifully with soft ripening cheeses, light salads, and oysters on the half shell
