    Glossary

Largely sourced from the Sonoma Coast and Atlas Peak AVAs, Mannequin has been a staple of the Orin Swift lineup showcasing the best California Chardonnay available. Dave searched across the state and ended up closer to home than usual. Through a number of trials, we blended together a balanced Chardonnay, using a bit of Sauvignon Blanc and Muscat to flesh out the wine and add complexity, resulting in a wine unlike any out there.

he 2013 Proprietary White Mannequin, which draws fruit from diverse regions of Northern California such as the Carneros Basin and the Sonoma Coast, is actually a blend of 76% Chardonnay, 8% Viognier, 6% Marsanne, 5% Grenache Blanc, 3% Muscat and 2% Roussanne. This is amazing wine, a gorgeous, full-throttle, honeyed wine with a light-gold color, oodles of tropical fruits including pineapple and mango, rose petal and floral notes, and beautifully integrated oak (aged in 40% new French oak on its lees for 11 months). This full-throttle wine is completely different and more individualistic than anything I’ve ever tasted. It is a magnificent, full-throttle, exuberant dry white to drink over the next 3-4 years.
