Sans Liege Cotes-du-Coast Central Coast White Blend 2020
Made by Curt Schlachlin, a rising star of the Central Coast wine scene talks about his wines: "Sans Liege is my relentless search for independence. Equally aligned with the freedoms of the New World and the heritage of the Rhône Valley, I am careful not to hold too closely to either. Tending fruit in vineyards that have captured my heart from Paso Robles down to Solvang, these sites speak for me and I for them; the only partners now on this path I tread."
This is the new world's attempt at a white blend from the Rhone. Grapes come from hillsides from "Cotes du Coast" as the name sake.

The trail to the coast took you past stretches of wild flowering lemon verbena and strewn bits of oyster shell. Now stepping onto the sand you are greeted by a cool ocean air which carries with it notes of coconut flesh, vanilla bean and yellow peach.
