2022 Rattlesnake Contact Blanc
This cuvée is all about fun, experimental batches, classic varieties being pushed to see what new personalities we can get out of them. Great vineyards also play a big role here to back up the texture, fruit & acid profiles. Made up of many different skin contact ferments, riesling, viognier, sauvignon blanc, pinot gris, Gewurtztraminer & chardonnay, it’s always a challenge to jot down what happened during the madness.
Rattlesnake is a sessionable skin contact wine that punches above and delivers time & time again. Over the years there has definitely been some wild expressions of this wine that I love. I feel like its found a good balance with all the consistent experimental components.
