This was one of the first attempts the Silvas made at a white blend (Chardonnay, Sauvignon Gris and Viognier), and it has some things going for it. The dry but pungent nose is intriguing, and the Sauvignon Gris is an unconventional Old World addition. Also, the full, creamy body makes it easy to drink. Overall, however, it's kind of nondescript. Expect more from the 2001 vintage.
