Winemaker's Notes:

The 2008 Climber White is a unique blend of our favorite white varietals. Sauvignon Blanc sourced from Lake County, Lodi and Monterey makes up the backbone of the wine, with clean melon, citrus and gooseberry aromas. Muscat adds increased terpene floral aromas and richness in the mouth. Riesling adds tropical and jasmine aromas, while also giving the mouth good acidity. Chardonnay from Monterey adds a minerality and depth in the mid palate. The Chenin Blanc increases the purity and structure of the blend.

The wine is 100% stainless steel fermented and did not go through malolactic fermentation so the purity of the fruit could be enhanced. The result is classical varietal notes with a crisp, refreshing mouthfeel.

About Clif Family Winery:

You may know us as the people behind Clif Bar & Company. We are the makers of Clif Bar, LUNA and other nutritious, organic products. We have always had a passion for the outdoors and great food and wine. After a long day of hiking or cycling, we enjoy nothing better than relaxing over a meal with family and friends enjoyed over a great bottle of wine. After moving to the Napa Valley in 1997, this passion continued and we began making our own wine in 2004. Now with winemakers Bruce Regalia and Sarah Gott, we are committed to making high quality, affordable wines sourced from sustainable or organic vineyards whenever possible. Enjoy!
