Many N. Americaners have little acquaintance with the earthy/floral white wines of Bordeaux, which run from the often prosaic Entre-deux-Mers to the sublime vins de terroir of Pessac and Graves; these undersung wines have created the template for our “Gravitas.” Gravitas—a blend of Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Gewürztraminer—is something else again. 

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The nose has the haunting perfume of magnolia flowers and scent of white peaches, with suggestions of ripe Bosc Pear, sweet green grass, exotic saffron, a touch of lavender honey and Meyer lemon zest. But wait, there’s more: A bit of bergamot orange blossom, jasmine, and key lime custard, quince and Madagascar vanilla. These aromas are echoed on the palate adding a light, deft, fresh acidity, flinty mineral character; a savory wine, perfect with all manner of seafood and lighter entrées.
Production Notes
Gentle pressing of the fruit, indigenous yeast, stainless steel fermentation, extended lees stirring for 5 months.
Food Pairing Notes
Oysters, cassoulet, grilled veggies, cheese course. Also lovely with spicy Thai food. For something totally unexpected, try pairing with creamy pistachio soup.
