SANS LIEGE 2011 PROPRIETARY WHITE "COTES DU COAST" CENTRAL COAST 750mL

Owner/winemaker Curt Schalchlin is the owner and only employee of Sans Liege Wines. After several years learning from and working for some of the Central Coast's most sought-after producers, Curt decided to go his own way. He has rapidly made a name for himself within the "Cal-Rhone Community" as one of the hot new producers of Syrahs, Grenaches, Viognier, and blends. His "Groundwork" lineup represents one heck of a value, and the Sans Liege wines really showcase his abilities.

The Cotes du Coast bottling is Curt's take on a white Rhone blend. Comprised of 54% Viognier, 19% Roussanne, 15% Grenache Blanc, and 12% Marsanne, the wine was fermented in both new and used French oak barrels.

Curt's Tasting Notes: "In the woodcuts of old books, you will find images of old liturgy. The people gathered in quiet comradery. Wafts of ancient spice, boughs of cloved oranges and dried thyme hanging neatly overhead. There are remnants of those days still with us, they land softly as moths on a lanternís glass, subtly altering the color of cast light. These ghosts are around us, continually changing the form of the world from chaos and clamour to the friendly and familiar. They create in us the spice of home: frothed cream, cinnamon flan, orange marmalade, moss covered roofs and poached apples. When these shades arrive the world snaps into focus with the freshness of lime zest, grated fennel and pressed cilantro leaf."
