2011 Quadrant - White Blend

2011 Quadrant - White Blend

The “Quadrant Series” consists of wines that contain four varieties in each blend. The success of the initial release of the QUADRANT COPPER (Rhone Red Blend) led to us releasing both a “Bordeaux” version (QUADRANT PLATINUM) and now this white wine.


Following in the footsteps of the reds, this wine is a blend of 4 varieties, Chardonnay (50%), Viognier (26%), Pinot Gris (16%) and Albarino (8%). There is nothing random about the parcels selected, in fact, considerable effort goes towards creating a wine with bot harmony and structure. Chardonnay is the predominant grape and carries both the oak influence typically associated with the variety as well as the wine’s texture. This is an excellent platform to work with. We then added Viognier and its mouth-filling fruit flavors as well as the accompanying bright acidity. This also serves to add another layer of complexity to the wine.


Finally, the inclusion of small volumes of Pinot Gris (adding ‘minerality’ and floral aromatics) and Albarino (acidity and length of flavor) round out a white blend that is both refreshing and lasting.

It can be best described as offering subtle spicy oak aromas surrounded by a cacophony of fruit, including melons, peaches, coconut and elderberry. The palate is rich and forward with each of the components adding its own personality while remaining in harmony. This is a real food wine and will handle being well chilled for those hot summer days, enjoy!

A wonderful alternative to chardonnay or pinot grigio for the summer months

This is a great, go-to wine to drink around the pool or with a light lunch or supper. It is a little lighter and a little sweeter than a Chard but definitely not too sweet with a lovely bright bouquet.
