Restricted is a collection of small-lot wines that are made by Chris Carpenter and Gianna Ghilarducci and are as formidable as the terrain from which they grow. These wines are typically available only to Mountain Wine Club Members. To commemorate our first-ever white wine for Restricted, we're offering this new release to Mt. Brave enthusiasts.
2022 Restricted Proprietary White Wine
Introducing the very first white wine under the Restricted label. The 2022 Restricted Proprietary White Wine is a radiantly aromatic and fresh blend of seven grape varieties by winemaker Gianna Ghilarducci who sourced the seven varieties from five American Viticultural Areas (AVAs) across Northern California.
The inspiration behind this wine was to explore often underappreciated varieties and show how the whole can be greater than the sum of the parts. Each variety plays a different role: Pinot Blanc-the structural spine of the wine, Sauvignon Blanc-lifts the aromatics, Albariño-adds salinity, Grenache Gris-imparts acidity and energy, Chenin Blanc-provides aromatic complexity, Marsanne and Roussanne-adds palate weight. The result is a distinctly full expression.
