2018 Contrast

60% Chardonnay & 40% Sauvignon Blanc
$50 - Sold Out

Contrast is a perfect example of what is possible in California but nearly outlawed in France: a co-ferment of Sauvignon Blanc & Chardonnay. When it comes to the “different & eclectic” offerings the Fabre brothers were looking to craft, Contrast is nearly the definition. In France, these varietals from Bordeaux/Loire and Burgundy are competitors; in Paso Robles, their opposing terroirs and characteristics work in harmony to deliver a stunningly unique wine. Crafted in a Chablis/Sancerre style, most of the acidity and brightness is garnered from the Chardonnay, while the Sauvignon Blanc is allowed an extended ripening to bring about tropical notes.
