Momentarius Monticello White Blend 2021

This wine is a blend of barrel fermented Viognier, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Petit Manseng, the most commonly planted white grapes in the Monticello AVA.  The wine is gold in color with pronounced aromas of white flowers, orange blossom and acacia that precede aromas of Meyer lemon, stone fruit and ginger. On the palate the wine has bright mouth-watering attack that is softened by the unctuous mouthfeel as notes of citrus and fresh green grass lead onto stone fruit, peach, apricot and pineapple; hints of Pina Colada and ginger add to the wonderful complexity of this wine. The finish is complex and long lasting. The wine has everything, balance, intensity, complexity and a forever finish.

Winemaker Notes
This 2021 Momentarius White is the second time we have put together a blend of white grapes that are the most commonly planted grapes in the Monticello AVA. I was absolutely shocked at how similar the final blend was given that I was just taking some of my favorite expressions and pieces of the vintage.  I found a little less Sauvignon Blanc balanced it out nicely.  The main goal of this wine is to formulate a stylistic white blend from our AVA which we are calling our ‘Monticello Blend’ which is very exciting.
