2016 Laissez Faire White Wine

750ml

“Beautiful everyday wine for the sophisticated palate, Laissez Faire is a fresh wine crafted for enjoyment any night of the week.  Aromas of key lime pie and Granny Smith apple are followed by a refreshingly crisph finish. Set your table with this Sauvignon Blanc blend and enjoy the simple pleasures of life, every day.” 

                            -Melanie Krause, Winemaker

The 2016 vintage was a warm, gentle season, unusually long for the Snake River Valley, with a cool fall. The spring started early and warm, the summer was gentle with lots of days in the 90’s but few over 100 degrees F. September cooled down significantly, allowing the grapes to ripen slowly and the winemaker to pick at exactly the optimal time for the style desired. The yield was ample enough to merit thinning the crop to leave only the best clusters. The white wines are elegant with lively, balanced acids and the reds are intensely fruity with long, textured finishes. 3100 growing degree days

Tasting notes

The Laissez Faire White wine is a proprietary blend of Sauvignon Blanc and other grape varieties, chosen and fermented to emphasize crisp, fresh fruit styles for everyday drinking.  The aromas are a fresh mix of lemon peel, tart green apple, with a hint of flower blossom and green grass.  Texture is medium bodied in the mouth and the finish is long, with bright, lingering acidity.  Flavors echo the aromas with Granny Smith apple, grapefruit and key lime pie. 

Production notes

Laissez Faire is just what its name implies, a “let it be” wine in terms of winemaking and drinking style.  Fermented slowly in stainless steel tanks at low temperatures for 1 month.  Settled for 3 months prior to filtration and bottling in January.  Use of stainless steel and quick bottling preserve the freshest fruit aromas and flavors. Proprietary blend of white wine varieties used.

Other notes

With the lean, refreshing finish, we recommend contrasting this wine with rich seafood such as crab rangoon, halibut and chips, or grilled pineapple with mahi mahi tacos.
