2002 Sine Qua Non Whisperin'E Dry White

$160.00 Bottle
  • ABV 14.9%
  • Closure: Cork

One of the most creative and multidimensional winemakers on Planet Earth, Manfred Krankl, ably assisted by his charming wife, Elaine, continues to fine tune the are and craft of winemaking. A maverick, individualist, sensualist, mountain climber, and genius, he has become the reference point for how extraordinary California’s south/central coast whites and reds can be. Krankl fashions amazing white blends of primarily Roussanne, Viognier, and Chardonnay, red wine blends of primarily Syrah with a dollop of Viognier, Grenache, and remarkable, decadent sweet wines that he co-produces with the well-known Austrian, Alois Kracher. Not only does Krankl make the wine, he designs and produces the quirky labels. Yep, he’s a talented artist as well. Don’t tell anybody, but ere seems to be conspiracy among the Austrians to take over California, with the governor, the state’s most famos chef (Wolfgang Puck), and now one of the world’s finest winemakers all of Austrian origin.

"The 2002 Proprietary White called Whisperin’ E is a concoction of 50% Roussanne, 31% Viognier, and 19% Chardonnay, most from the Alban Vineyard with a tiny dollop of Stolpman fruit. There are 524 cases of this light gold-colored 2002. A superb perfume of smoky hazelnuts intermixed with exotic lychee, honeysuckle, peach, and beeswax notes is followed by a full-bodied wine with a multilayered texture that pulls back in the finish to reveal surprising uplift, acidity, and lightness ... an amazing feat given a wine of this power, dimension, and intensity. It should drink well for another 5-7 years. 95 points." 14.9%Alc./Vol.
