Grape - Müller-Thurgau, white Riesling, Semillon, Pinot Gris, Gewürztraminer, Muscat Canelli, Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc and Sylvaner
Where - Oregon, USA
What - Back in 1971, before Oregon even has a wine industry, Bill and Susan Sokol Blosser planted their first vineyard of Pinot Noir as a hippie passion project to get the wine scene going. They knew that the grape would flourish in the Willamette Valley climate and they were damn right. The vineyards have always been farmed organically, right down to the straw and composting processes. There's even a flock of bluebirds in charge of controlling the insect population! And if you're looking for a sustainable producer, there's quite honestly no one more attuned to protecting their environment.
Although it's a secret blend of grapes, you've pretty much got everything going on in this bottle. Maybe it would come across as confused, but this wine knows exactly what it's about. It's aromatic, crisp and full of tropical flavours. Whilst complex, it remains as the sort of wine that anyone could drink and enjoy. It weighs in at a nice, approachable medium-body with a touch of spice and white flowers.
The Evolution White Blend is a real crowd-pleaser; crisp on the finish and brimming with sunshine. An absolute cellar stape.
