Product Description

Abraxas is a reaction against homogeneity and a salute to distinctiveness. Born of the idea that three of the four noble grapes of Alsace (Riesling, Pinot Gris, and Gewürztraminer) with a bit of classic Pinot Blanc, planted in RSV’s organic Scintilla Sonoma Vineyard, would respond distinctly to the unique weather patterns of each year. The four varieties could then be blended in ratios determined by each variety’s individual response to the vintage, making the wine whole while avoiding the manipulations often found in a more industrialized cellar. Abraxas does not aspire to be anything but true to vintage. Pop the glass top (or the cork on the magnums) to be greeted with fresh pippin and pear with subtle almond and lychee aromas. The structure, texture and style is reminiscent of the Old World with a bright, tight-knit mineral quality. The wine has nice weight in the mid-palate with flavors that mimic the aroma with the addition of crisp peach, lime and a hint of melon rind. The flavors and textures magically come together for a satisfyingly long finish. Delicious!
