2016 Spettro White Blend, Napa Valley
106 Cases Produced
Harmonious! That is how we describe the 2016 Spettro blend. It is in full balance beginning with a perfume of tropical citrus, vanilla, a hint or orange blossom and some subtlety of round river stone for curiosity. The palate is bright and refreshing. The Chardonnay brings in beautiful, citrus and fresh tropical fruit cocktail notes. Viognier and Vermentino each lend a variety of added complexity in structure and minerality. The palate finishes very clean and fresh, inviting you in for another taste.
The word “spettro” translated means “spirit” and it is in the spirit of constant experimentation with blending varietals that this wine is aptly named. Now in its 12th year since inception, the Spettro program continues to flourish. We love seeing so many varietals come together. This is very exciting to witness as they each meld so harmoniously in the blend. What is more exciting from a winemaking standpoint is that this mélange is loaded with varietals with which we love to experiment.
