Interessante

2014 Viognier / Sauvignon Blanc, California

production: 14 barrels made

$34per bottle


Things just got interessante. This white is completely unlike anything Andy has created before—a complex, exciting blend that highlights the best of each grape. The unexpected aromas and flavors inspired Jessica to letter “Interessante”—Italian for “interesting.” The storybook-like, overgrown, illustrative label embodies the natural terrain of Andy’s rustic country property and the vibrancy of the wine.

About the Wine
“The Viognier gives you that honeysuckle, beeswax character. The Sauvignon Blanc–lifted floral notes, lime zest, and citrus. The Chardonnay gives you that nuttiness, and golden character. The Roussanne gives you earthiness.”
Andy Erickson, Winemaker
