Chardonnay is the major player in this bottle, but don’t expect the typical butter-bomb from Napa Valley. We matured this wine primarily in stainless steele with just a touch of neutral french oak to highlight the tropical flavors of the Chardonnay.
Colombard is a grape that was first used in France to produce Cognac, and has become a popular blending varietal with Chardonnay. It brings out citrus notes and minerality to the wine. The Pinot Blanc brightens the blend with lively acidity, while the Sémillon adds a touch of stone fruit and richness to the palate.
Yacht Rock celebrates the bygone era of smooth-music by the likes of Kenny Loggins, Steely Dan, Hall and Oates, and Michael McDonald. On the back of the bottle you can find the quote “Keep it smooth, even when it grooves”, one of the three sentiments used to describe the music of the era. The songs from this genre are light, catchy, and above else, smooth.
Yacht Rock reminds us that there’s always time to kick back and enjoy the view. Imagine sailing off into the sunset, a cool breeze blowing in the sails, a refreshing drink in hand, and the soft tunes of the 1970s playing over the radio. We dont know about you, but that sounds like the dream to us.
Sailin' into the sunset.
