2013 Woodenhead French Colombard Halfshell White Wes Cameron Ranch Russian River Valley, Sonoma County

“Attenuated and cooling, sharp and crystal pure.”

2013 Woodenhead French Colombard Halfshell White Wes Cameron Ranch Russian River Valley, Sonoma County
Light gold with a saline mineral note; it’s briny and chalky and salty all at once. The body is attenuated and cooling, sharp and crystal pure. It is mince, as the French might say—thin and reedy. But this is its charm. It’s not trying to be something it isn’t. There is no oak make-up, no butteriness masking its green citrus fruit.

There’s an oyster on the label for a reason: serve it with oysters plain or dressed with mignonette, or try it with mussels vinaigrette, ceviche, seafood salad, fresh cheeses.
