Tasting Notes
72% Sauvignon Blanc, 17% Chardonnay, & 11% Muscat

Appearance: Pale Straw
Aromas: A vibrant bouquet with highlights of lime, honeysuckle, and white peach. Mineral notes lead way to jasmine and passion fruit.

Vineyard Notes
The 2013 vintage gave us near perfect growing conditions which led to an early harvest with the first Estate Sauvignon Blanc grapes arriving at the winery on August 5, 12 days ahead of 2012, and 25 days ahead of 2011. Spring conditions were warm and dry which led to an early bud break and very even set. Aside from one hot spell at the end of June, temperatures remained moderate throughout the spring and summer. With only eight inches of rain from January through June, the vines had less green growth and an earlier turn to fruit development. As harvest progressed, Chardonnay became ripe with the first grapes arriving on August 29 and continuing through September 23.
Winemaker Notes
Our Equilibrium white blend is a rich, fun, and unique wine that’s easy to enjoy. The name Equilibrium means “to come together in a state of harmonious balance.” With this in mind, our winemakers crafted a unique expression of artisanal blending. Crisp mouthfeel showing bright floral notes along with refreshing pear and white peach flavors, Equilibrium is an ensemble of Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, and Muscat. The perception of sweetness enables it to pair beautifully with a range of foods, from spicy barbeque to Thai and other Asian cuisines.
