2010 E11even "Unplugged" Central Coast White
Eleven is a new label from Andrew Murray, winemaker at the eponymously named, family-owned winery in Los Olivos on California's Central Coast. Eleven captures Murray's rebellious spirit, and gives him an outlet to make wines from something other than Rhône varietals. Priced with the hardships of the current economy in mind, these wines are "like getting a deal on great seats at a concert and the band playing two encores," says Murray. The "Unplugged" is an unoaked blend of Chenin Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay. Racy, aromatic, crisp and dry. This is like seeing your favorite rock band play an unplugged set. It's a shade more approachable, but it's still loud!
