"Mercury Rising Blanc is the proprietary name of Cinnabar’s edgy white wine blend. Starting with flavorful fruit from exceptional vineyards, we aim to produce a crisp, enchanting wine with a hint of grassiness that is free from the dominance of toasted oak barrels or malolactic fermentation. In 2005, sources in Monterey County, Sonoma County and Clarksburg contributed sauvignon blanc, viognier and semillon. Lots were fermented separately and then blended, creating a wine with bright fruit components, lively acidity and intriguing complexity.
TASTINGNOTES: Enjoy fragrances of grapefruit, Meyer lemon peel, pineapple, white peach, orange blossom, wet stones and a whisper of grassiness. The flavor profile
shows complex citrus, kiwi and minerals with a structure of bright acidity.
The long finish will complement deep fried calamari, shrimp with spicy
cocktail sauce, or grilled salmon."
