  • This is our second year producing White Light. It
    started as a “fix” for not having enough Tocai Friulano
    to bottle as a stand alone wine, but we ended up really
    liking the blend and it was well received by everyone so
    here it is again. Our goals have stayed the same - bottle
    something fresh with acid and some mineral and retain
    that sort of salty, briny character that the Friulano
    had. This is pretty much what you will find in the bottle
    with some nice aromatic characters too.
    So, 30% Tocai Friulano from Mendocino, 36% Riesling
    from Arroyo Seco, and 23% Verdelho from Suisun Valley
    and 11% Sauvignon Blanc from Potter Valley. Everything
    was picked at the beginning of the season with
    brix numbers ranging from 19? to 21?. The final wine is
    12.0% alcohol. Each variety was fermented individually
    in stainless steel tanks without commercial yeast
    and kept at a cool fermentation temperature. When the
    fermentation was complete, we filtered the wine and left
    it in stainless steel until it was bottled in January of
    2017.
    White Light was inspired by a trip to the vortexes of Sedona,
    Arizona, but maybe a little Velvet Underground
    or Wilco too. I’m not that much into New Age thinking,
    but tell me something will feel good and I’m a believer.
    Certainly ready and fun to drink now, but may gain
    some complexity with time. - Kenny Likitprakong, Winemaker
