Winemaker's Notes

Flora Springs planted their Crossroad Vineyard in the Oakville Appellation with Sauvignon Blanc, using the Sauvignon Musque clone in order to make the most unique flavors that they could. Although this area is noted for the production of great red grapes, Flora Springs took the bold step of challenging this warm growing region with the very distinct white grape and they are ecstatic with the result. As a result of that planting, they have captured a special hint of gooseberry and herbal expression that are trademarks of the Sauvignon Blanc varietal.

The great consistency of Soliloquy over the last several years is indicative of the fruit that Flora Springs is getting from their Oakville vineyard. The 2004 Soliloquy is focused and lean with a clean fruit sensation on the palate – flavors of melon and fig with just a hint of vanilla. The finish is smooth and long, with just a hint of tartness to give it that extra "zing" at the end. It is an incredibly well-balanced wine that is refreshing and complex at the same time.

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.
