Big House wines are a rebellious mix of non-traditional grape varieties destined to give the imbiber a new experience. To wit, this year’s prisoner is a captivating blend of aromatic whites that span the distance of the Alps themselves. With a nose that carries the vibrancy of spring and white flowers and lychee fruit that surround the senses. The palate opens up to tropical fruits, dried apricot and white peaches. This wine finishes strong with a cleansing citrus zest that lingers.
Harvested at night, this wine is fermented cool in stainless steel to maximize the fresh fruit characteristics, retain its crisp acidity and long finish.
It’s quite possibly the perfect accompaniment to summer “chain gang” duties in the yard, fresh fish, Asian cuisine or even Sunday morning fruit salads. Click here to view recipes from Mess Hall.
