Born from the dark and provocative world of The Prisoner Wine Company enters a new white wine expression that explores light, vibrance, and elegance. Blindfold was crafted to awaken your senses.
Like walking into a floral conservatory in full bloom of white citrus and jasmine. Full of locally farmed ripe honeydew melon, white nectarine, warmed pink grapefruit, and Meyer lemon aromas and flavors. This wine begins with a dense, sweet, ripe fruit and has great weight and body influenced by the portion of the blend that was fermented in a barrel. .
Sauvignon Blanc grapes were harvested during the cool early dawn hours in late August 2022. After pressing, half the juice was sent to a combination of new and neutral oak barrels for fermentation, while the other half was fermented in stainless steel. After fermentation, the barrel portion was bâtonnaged three times before finally racking and creating the full final blend. The mix of oak and stainless fermentation leads to the fusion of freshness and body that this wine delivers.
