Kivelstadt Cellars, Mother of Invention, 2013

If I closed my eyes and drank this white from the Lake County in California, I’d probably think I were drinking something Rhône. Using typical Rhône varietals, the winemakers at Kivelstadt made a wine that is not only genetically old worldly, but also stylistically, and it’s a delightful creation.

With a grape makeup of 80% Roussanne and 20% Viognier, this is a full bodied white wine filled to the brim with complexity and nuance. Bright fruit – melon, exotic fruits, and peach – appear alongside beautiful aromatics that can be attributed in large part to the presence of Viognier. It features a smooth, viscous mouthfeel, and is far from one-dimensional.

This is a wine I would recommend to fans of Northern Rhône white wines, or anyone looking for something unique and bold out of California.

And it is an ideal companion to Greek-style pork chops!
