2022 Kivelstadt Cellars “Mother of Invention” White

From $35

White flower, citrus blossom, white peach, nectarine and a hint of chamomile tea on the nose. There is a powerful and heady entry on the palate punctuated by floral and peach flavors. The weight balances beautifully with the acid on the finish.  Aromas of floral and citrus aromas like citrus blossom and white flowers.

The Marsanne and Roussanne are pressed into the same tank and undergoes native co-fermentation. We make no additions that alter the naturally occurring chemistry. After pressing the grape juice it is moved to neutral French oak barrels where it completed primary and malolactic fermentation before a 6-month elevate sur lie. Next the wine was rached to a tank for natural cold stability before being bottled unfixed and unfiltered.

The Mother of Invention is a white blend influenced by the Southern Rhône. Produced from two of the most interesting and expressive grapes on the planet (Marsanne and Roussanne). It is fermented and aged entirely in barrel to bring out the beauty and weight of the grapes. This wine retains its freshness while having the intense aroma and flavor that we love from Rhône whites.

Pairs well with rich seafood, pork dishes and spicy Asian cuisine.
