ENVELOPE 2011MADE BY HALSTEAD PROPERTY IN BRIDGEHAMPTON, NEW YORK
We're loving this boom we’re seeing in “orange” wines. They’re white wines made like red wines, fermented the grapes' skins to take advantage of naturally occurring yeasts. So you get some extra tannins and structure with your white(ish) wine.
The Envelope 2011 is full-bodied yet dry, and when you sip, you get waves of flavor like stone fruit, honey, lychee, spices, minerals and dried fruit. Made from 52% Chardonnay, 38% Malvasia Bianca and 10% Gewürztraminer, then aged for 20 months in a mix of new and old oak barrels, it’s big, bold and very flavorful.

This is our favorite wine to sip with cured meats and soft cheeses.
