White Zinfandel continues to be one of the more popular wines especially during the summer months. Our White Zinfandel is made in a style that lends itself to being enjoyed with or without a meal. The wine’s bouquet is full of fruit characters, berries, cherry and watermelon though not overly intense. The flavors are delicate and full of the Zinfandel fruit, all balanced with a slight bit of sweetness to make this off dry wine clean, smooth and brisk in the finish. Enjoy it now for any reason, sipping, picnicking, or with your favorite meals. It pairs great with spicy food!
There's nothing like a White Christmas, but here on the Central Coast we rarely get snow. So, we drink win instead! This 3 pack has the perfect wine spectrum ranging from a crisp, stainless-steal Sauvignon Blanc to a floral and fruity Viognier to the light, smooth and creamy Chardonnay.
Egret wines honor the Great Egret that is now a common sight throughout Carneros and Sonoma County after being hunted to near extinction at the beginning of the 20th century. Egret wines are also the second label for Bonneau Winery. This winery is operated by the third generation of Bonneaus with family history dating back to the early 1920s in the Sonoma, and later the Los Carneros appellation. The Bonneaus orginally came to America from the vineyard lands of Bordeaux, France and began farming a 70 acre parcel just south of the town of Sonoma. After growing and providing Chardonnay grapes to several well known wineries in both Sonoma and Napa, the family launched its own label in 2002. Other grape varieties are sourced from top vineyards in Sonoma, Napa, Amador, and Monterey Counties.
We love a challenge and 2011 was one. Cooler weather meant it took about three weeks longer to ripen. We harvested from two different blocks of a single vineyard and fermented in stainless steel barrels. We fermented half in stainless steel for brightness; the other half in oak to smooth out the green notes. Then we blended them back together for a complexity that reflects the best of both worlds. Proving once again that good things come to those who wait an extra three weeks.
