2013 Buddy's Blend

Richard Dinner, Lucas’ grandfather, planted the vineyards at Rocky Hill over three decades ago.  He was a larger than life character with many wonderful nicknames, but one that really stuck was Buddy.  Our new white blend, Buddy’s Blend, is very much a tribute to his vision, passion, and appreciation for a good white.  Buddy’s Blend is a compelling example of how parts of a blend come together to compliment one another.  The Chardonnay provides an excellent backbone and offers a creamy texture, ripe flavors, and touch of wood.  It offers notes of custard, apple, vanilla, and peach.  The Pinot Gris is a gently perfumed, dry white that offers complexity without overpowering aromas.  The delicately perfumed nose offers a breeze of fresh floral and tropical notes.  The palate offers layers of ripe fruit – grapefruit and melon – and minerality balanced with lively acids through to a nice long finish.  Together the two create a crisp wine that is complex and structured, with a mouth-watering lushness of exotic notes.  The acids of the Pinot Gris bring out the best in the Chardonnay, and the Chardonnay gives the Pinot Gris a foundation to build on.  It is a wine that will grab your attention and will leave you wanting more.  It truly fulfills our ambition to create distinctive wines of place.
50% Pinot Gris, 50% Chardonnay. 14.6% Alc by Vol.
