Arietta 2017 On the White Keys
On the White Keys is crafted in tribute to our favorite white wines from Graves and Entre-Deux-Mers. Our goal is to produce a wine with great structure, depth, and ageability. The 2017 vintage is no exception. A blend of 89% Sauvignon Blanc and 11% Semillon, the wine presents a vivid spectrum of aromas and flavors, delivered in high definition. Candied citrus peel, flint, lemon grass and Thai basil are only a few of the descriptors that come to mind as the wine opens in the glass. This aromatic intensity is matched by the wine’s brilliant gold color. On the palate, the wine is nothing if not incredibly generous, fresh and energetic, having a near-electric quality. Flavors of bergamot, lemon curd, and vanilla bean are held together by an impressive lattice of phenolic strength and complex oak tannin and toast. These delicious white wines have proven to be ageworthy in the serious oeonophile’s cellar. However, this vintage is delicious right out of the gate.
