White Keys: A Melodic Inversion

White Wine
Napa Valley

5 cases produced

Highlights

  • Reverse blend of Arietta's white wine, On the White Keys, created by Arietta winemaker Andy Erickson
  • 88% Semillon, 12% Sauvignon Blanc
  • Extended aging: 22 months in French oak, 90% new
  • Primary grape sources: Napa/Carneros and Wooden Valley

Arietta's PNV 2017 lot honors this year's PNV Chairman Andy Erickson, who created Arietta's white wine "On The White Keys" upon becoming Arietta's winemaker in 2005. Arietta's PNV 2017 lot is, in musical terms, an "inverted" (upside down) blend of 88% Semillon and 12% Sauvignon Blanc. With longer aging in barrel and more new oak, Arietta's unique "White Keys: A Melodic Inversion" will resonate for many years.
