I have wanted to make a white wine under the Eponymous label for some time, but it has taken thirteen years to find the right vineyard and varietal. Having made Sauvignon Blanc many times over the years, the first at my family’s winery and now in California and Argentina for clients, it would be the obvious choice. Instead, I decided to make a white blend—a wine that has piqued my interest recently with its ability to be both light and complex. Finding the ideal vineyard in Carneros, where both Pinot Gris and Pinot Blanc reach maturity about the same time, made this an easy choice. Often wines made by fermenting different varietals together can be wonderful, due to the seamless harmony of fruit characteristics that can be achieved. The fruit was co-fermented in stainless steel at cool temperatures for enhanced fruit intensity, before being transferred near the end of fermentation to smaller 75 gallon stainless steel drums for 6 months of sur lies aging, adding complexity and mouth feel.

Great as an aperitif, Eponymous Proprietary White is a great match for both hot and cold appetizers, especially seafood, vegetable and Asian cuisine.
