Wine Details

Wine Description

Orin Swift Blindfold is a blend of Chardonnay, Viognier, Marsanne, Roussanne, Grenache Blanc, Semillon and Riesling, this hodge-podge white shows off 25% new French and Hungarian oak and hot buttered apples and pears. There is a caramel undertone throughout its oak-toasted marshmallow and freshly-popped popcorn.

Tasting Note

Nose is all fruit, lots of grape character with subtle peach and floral notes. Medium to heavy body, initial burst of acidic citrus and quickly gives way to a great chardonnay butter, that then subsides in to a toasty, nutty, vanilla finish that seems to go on forever and is smooth as silk. Huge, complex, powerhouse of a white.
