Idlewild 2021 'Flora & Fauna' White

OriginNorth Coast, California (USA)

Grape(s): Arneis / Muscat Canelli / Cortese

Tasting Notes: The Flora & Fauna White is a balance of florals (oranage blossoms), minerals (wet stones), citrus (lemon peel), and orchard fruit (pear). Just when the wine starts to feel intense in its phenolics and aromatics, the palate turns to this near rain water like lightness with a crisp and clean finish!

Vineyard Notes: Flora and Fauna loosely means the collection of plant and animal life of a certain epoch. In Idlewild's version, it is the collection of varieties from the cellar that make up the blend for the year. The blend compromises of Arneis, Muscat Canelli (a.k.a Muscat Blanc, Moscato Bianco), and Cortese. All three varieties predominantly come from the steep hillsides of Lost Hills Ranch in Mendocino’s Yorkville Highlands AVA, where the vines work hard to dig into the fractured sandstone and schist based soils.
