The story! In an effort to keep their vineyards sustainable, the winemakers began to spread grape skins over the soil to revitalize it. What did they have in abundance that year? Cabernet. What happens when there's no grape skin contact during maceration? White Cabernet. Perfect for the warmer days in life!

In your mouth: I'm medium bodied, with the lean fruit of Sauvignon Blanc. On the palate, I become rounder, herbaceous, fascinating. My dry finish begs for food, but I'm fun enough to drink all summer.
