Matthiasson White Blend California

“The Sauvignon Blanc comes from Ryans Vineyard, which sits on a streak of alluvial gravel in the center of the valley floor, south part of Napa. The Ribolla gialla and Tocai friulano are from the tiny Elsa’s Vineyard, in the mouth of Napa’s Dry Creek canyon, right next to the creek. The Semillon is from 60 or 70 plus year old vines in the Yount Mill Vineyard in Yountville. They are head trained and dry farmed.”
