We visited Breaux Vineyards for the May "Fourth Friday." Breaux stays open until 9:00 PM on the "fourth Friday" of the month. They have wine specials, some kind of food to enjoy, as well as live musical entertainment. We have been to two Fourth Friday events now.
The May fourth Friday gave us an opportunity to do a quick cellar club tasting and pick up too. There were two white wines in this shipment. These are winemaker Heather Munden's first white wines and we were quite pleased with both of them.
The 2014 Sauvignon Blanc is a blend of tank fermented and barrel fermented wine, with 95 percent done in tank and 5 percent done in used French and American oak. We enjoyed this wine a lot and purchased an additional bottle to enjoy outdoors. The familiar Sauvignon Blanc grassy taste was present, but subdued, in this nicely balanced citrus flavored wine.
The Stone Barn White is a blend of the following: 45 percent Vidal Blanc, 28 percent Seyval Blanc, 20 percent Chardonnay, and 7 percent Sauvignon Blanc. It is named after one of the original structures at Breaux Vineyards. (I think if I was doing the tasting menu, I would have poured this first).
