Winemaker's Notes

Soliloquy is a most unusual wine. Its basis is the old Sauvignon Blanc vines that give it its unique character that is reminiscent of a garden of honeysuckle, peaches and spicy fruit. We have planted the Sauvignon Musqué clone in the vineyard in anticipation of the decline of our old vines. Sauvignon Musqué exhibits many of the same characteristics of the old Soliloquy vines but has the bonus of more power. My philosophy with Soliloquy is to deal with it as gently as possible. This means that I do not use any small barrels. Instead, I rely on sur lies aging to round out the wine and give it a silky mouthfeel.

Learn About Bordeaux White Blends

Bordeaux White Blend
There's white wine in Bordeaux, too! Typically made from Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, and bits of Muscadelle, white Bordeaux can be a fully dry table wine or, as in Sauternes, a deliciously sweet dessert wine. In other areas of the world, a Bordeaux blend consists primarily of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, either of which may be the predominant variety. Bordeaux blends can vary in style, but most have good acidity and often a mineral overtone.
