2009 Sanguis "Uncloudy Day" Central Coast White Blend

SKU #1274693 92 points James Suckling

 Excellent white with lots of apple pie, honey, and light cream character and lemons underneath. Full and tangy with beautiful acidity. Made from 74% Chardonnay, 18% Roussanne and 8% Viognier.  (1/2012)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2009 White Wine Uncloudy Day is 74% Chardonnay, 18% Roussanne and 8% Viognier that was aged for 15 months in 65% neutral oak barrels and 35% stainless steel. It bursts from the glass with an exciting array of mango, passion fruit and honey in an opulent, yet harmonious, plush style. A nuanced, finish rounds things out nicely. This is another striking, rich wine from Matthias Pippig. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2019. (AG)  (8/2011)

91 points Wine Enthusiast

 Rich, ripe and flamboyant in tropical fruit, pear, peach, Meyer lemon, orange jam and vanilla spice flavors. Layered, opulent, lush and honeyed, but actually quite dry on the finish, with a burst of acidity. The blend is Chardonnay, Roussanne and Viognier.  (10/2011)

Country:

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.

Sub-Region:

California

- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.

Specific Appellation:

Santa Maria/Santa Barbara

- Santa Maria and Santa Ynez make up the two AVAs of Santa Barbara County, an area known for its natural beauty and temperate climate. The best grape-growing areas, however, are located on the very coastal reaches of these two appellations, and are cooled by ever-present fog and ocean breezes (it is even cooler and foggier here than Carneros!). As expected, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir thrive while the more inland zones lay claim to Bordeaux varietals and some Rhône blends.
