Shadybrook Estate Platine Blanc 2012

Shady Brook Estate Coombsville
Retail Price: $38.00
Notes from the Winemaker: At Shadybrook Estate we are committed to a Bordeaux varietal model whether the wines are varietally labeled as with our Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec or bear a proprietary name such as this inaugural release of 2012 Platiné Blanc patterned after the great dry white wines of Graves in the south of Bordeaux. Here Semillion reigns supreme with the more familiar Sauvignon Blanc taking on a supporting role. When reflecting on the varietal character of Semillion one has to look for its luscious mouthfeel and flavors of white pitted fruits such as peach and nectarine. Sauvignon Blanc adds acidity and firm structure to the blend with flavors of spice, pear and a touch of citrus. The Bordelais discovered centuries ago that when these two native grapes are paired in just the right way the flavors and bouquet of the two far exceed what either can demonstrate on their own.
