|2017 Duet Dry Creek Valley|
|Duet is a California version of a Graves style Bordeaux Blanc, a blend of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc. Philip first made this wine in the middle 1980s when it quickly developed a cult following, and it continues to do so today. The heart and soul of the wine are the two wonderful vineyards from which it is sourced: Richard Rued's small Semillon vineyards in Dry Creek, and Kent Richie's Poplar Vineyard on the Russian River. Contracts for both vineyards had remained with Philip's previous winery when he left, but he told both growers that if their grapes ever became available, he dearly wanted to work with them again. They did, and Duet was reborn|
Varietal: 50% Semillon / 50% Sauvignon Blanc
Vineyard: Sauvignon Blanc from the Standley Dry Creek Valley
Date picked: 9/30/17
Fermentation Mode: Fermented in both stainless steel tank and seasoned French and American oak barrels
The wine has a full and complex nose and flavors; peaches and ripe figs from the Semillon, and grassiness, melon and a mineral component from the Sauvignon Blanc.
This is a California version of a French Graves. An ideal match for raw oysters or any seafood.
