Big House Wines 2009 White - 85pts
Availability: Widely available at BCLDB stores and private wine shops
Production: 115,000 cases
Date Tasted: July 15th, 2011
Tasting Notes: With a wild assemblage consisting of 8 white varietals and no specific regional designation other than "California", one's expectations are lowered. But these facts don't do the wine justice as the result of the Malvasie Bianca, Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc, Muscal Canelli and Viognier blend are lovely, aromatic notes of exotic, sweet fruit and a rich, dry, well-balanced palate. Despite the grocery list of ingredients, the wine is not overly complex, yet the crisp, fun and easy-drinking character of the wine make it an easy addition to your summer sipping rotation. Drink 2011-2012.
