"This Marsanne and Viognier led blend also sees Verdelho and Sauvignon Blanc getting in on the act to create a unique ensemble. It’s waxy and tropical (pineapple, mango), reminiscent of chewy fruit sweets, but deftly balanced thanks to a fresh acidity and slight oxidative note."
Vinous Reverie Notes
This is a blend of many different grape varieties. Sean Thackrey has been making interesting wines for decades, and his unique winemaking has broken ground and influenced many practices. At his small Bolinas winery, he tinkers and incorporates practices he has learned. Sean prides himself on touching every grape that goes into his wines personally. He relies on his intuition and senses to craft his exciting wines. The Sean Thackrey “La Pleiade ” California White Blend is a blend of multiple varietals which are not disclosed. The wine feels a bit like a White Rhône blend, crossed with a Spanish Albarino. It has notes of apple and pear and green fruits, with pithy notes and nutty hints. There’s a great texture to the wine, making it an ideal match with cheese and nuts and with classical, traditional dishes such as roast chicken. If you want a wine from off the beaten path, or just a delicious and interesting wine, this is for you!
