Gold - Los Angeles Wine Competition - May 2017
When we create The Whip each vintage, we look to deliver a wine with aromatic appeal that provides a textured and delicious palate, and has the presence and crisp finish to be an excellent food wine. We are fortunate to grow several aromatic white varietals on our estate, such as Viognier and Muscat Canelli, that provide beautiful fruit and floral expressions. We use those varietals and others to accentuate the rich and full palate provided by our estate Chardonnay and Semillon enhanced by the wonderful natural acidity of our Sauvignon Blanc. This helps us deliver a complete wine that tells the story of our estate each and every vintage. Enjoy now through 2020.
91 Points Wine Spectator - Fragrant, with peach blossom and honeyed notes of baked apple that are rich and unctuous. The core of citrus and apple flavors is juicy and crisp, finishing with an appealing spicy accent.
