MURRIETA’S WELL THE WHIP 2014
29% Semillon, 27% Chardonnay, 18% Sauvignon Blanc, 12% Orange Muscat, 8% Muscat Canelli, 6% Viognier
Winemaker, Robbie Meyer, says:
The Whip 2014 is an elegant and balanced wine, fruit driven with a hint of toasty oak. While this is a Chardonnay and Semillon led style, each grape varietal has a purpose in our blend that I hand select to add elements like structure, texture, floral notes, and acidity. This unique wine showcases juicy fruit flavors of white peach, pear and melon with bright acidity and a touch of sweetness that creates a smooth and creamy finish.
We love serving this Semillon and Chardonnay-led blend with this blackberry, goat cheese, and fennel crostini recipe. I’ve linked to the full tasting notes here and you can find The Whip 2014 online here.
