2012 Vino Valpredo Bianca Mia
Made from fruit in both the Russian River Valley and Dry Creek Valley, this appealing blend of 60% Sauvignon Blanc and 40% Chardonnay is the same shade of sun bleached straw. Initial aromas of ripe white peaches and nectarines, honeysuckle, and Meyer lemon shift subtly into notes of citrus blossoms. Rich and silky in texture, it has refreshingly bright acidity. Your palate will be awash in intense flavors of orange, tangerine, and sweet pea flowers. The Bianca Mia is the quintessential picnic wine.
-Winemaker Brad Longton
The fruit for the Bianca Mia was whole cluster pressed. The Sauvignon Blanc is tank fer-mented to help enhance aromatics and the Chardonnay is 50% tank fermented at cool tem-peratures and 50% native barrel fermented in neutral barrels to soften the mouth feel.
