2022 Folk Machine "White Light" White Wine, California
This White Light is another fun, easy drinking, summery, light, and affordable wine. Our goals have stayed the same - bottle something fresh with acid and some mineral and retain that sort of salty, briny character that the Tocai Friulano has, but tone it down with the fruit and aromatics of Riesling and Verdelho.
The 2022 is 42% Tocai Friulano from Mendocino, 18% Riesling from Arroyo Seco, 17% Verdelho from Suisun Valley, 15% Albariño from Borden Ranch, and 8% Sauvignon Blanc from Potter Valley. Each of the lots were picked early in the season with brix numbers ranging from 19˚ to 21˚. The final wine is 11.6% alcohol. Bottled at the beginning of December 2022.
White Light was inspired by a trip to the vortexes of Sedona, Arizona, but maybe a little Velvet Underground too. I’m not that much into New Age thinking, but tell me something will feel good and I’m a believer.
