ORIN SWIFT 2012 PROPRIETARY WHITE "MANNEQUIN" CALIFORNIA 750mL

Blending is a fundamental, challenging, yet rewarding practice at Orin Swift. Because considerable time is invested in sourcing the best fruit available, they are intent, and to some degree, obligated to honor it appropriately. While red wine production governs much of the Orin Swift Cellars portfolio, Mannequin is a realization of a goal to create an eclectic and pleasing white blend.

True to the varietal, while offering a pleasing integration of accent notes is the motivation for their second release of Mannequin. Chardonnay from the finest sites in California headlines the blend while elegantly supported with Viognier, Semillon, Muscat, and Marsanne. A distinctive barrel program was employed to give just the right amount of reinforcement while not overpowering the delicate harmony of flavors. Eclectic and pleasing, the wine can hold up to a variety of cuisines, or on its own.

A blend of Chardonnay, Viognier, Semillon, Muscat, and Marsanne, the wine was matured in a union of 40% new French oak, 40% neutral oak, and 20% stainless steel for 14 months. A brilliant yellow, gold hue invites the senses and draws attention the wine’s supremely fragrant notes of honeysuckle, pear, orange peel, green apple, roasted fig, and a touch of French oak. Ripe, round, and exotic, the palate is treated to a supple and concentrated mouthfeel supported with melon, fresh pineapple, and citrus flavors. The finish is positively rich and lingering with a lively seam of acidity to add dimension.
