Vare Napa Valley 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

A sophisticated, complex, and rich blend of Ribolla Gialla, Pinot Grigio, Tocai Friulano, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay. The wine is full bodied with good acid balance and medium tannins. A floral nose, tropical passionfruit, star anise, stone fruit undertones with a long finish. All wines were slowly fermented in once-used French oak barrels. The wine was aged for 20 months and bottled in September 2007 for early Spring 2008 release.The wine is delightful on its own lightly chilled, and is a superb food wine with grilled fish or chicken, soups, salads, and cheeses.Only 20 cases of 500 ml bottles and 7 cases of 1.5 liter bottles were made.
