This blend was created to honor the first Saini Vineyard’s Winemaker Nonno Michele, a tribute to all the wines he created to be shared with his friends and family. We are carrying on the tradition with our 2021 Nonno’s Bianco, a blend of Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc and Sauvignon Blanc. Each variety brings an important element to the blend--depth and apple fruit notes from the Chardonnay, zesty citrus elements from the Sauvignon Blanc and a ripe peach character and richness from the Chenin Blanc.
The 2021 Sauvignon Blanc shows its Dry Creek Valley origins in the inviting aromas it displays, a wonderful entwining of floral notes and citrus elements with hints of green apple. The flavors of fresh fruit with zesty acidity come from the cool tank fermentation, while an appealing depth is the result of the barrel fermented portion.
