A nonvintage blend, the Evolution is as clever as it gets. This 18th edition (the edition numbers serve a similar function to a vintage date) melds several different grapes into an aromatic, lushly detailed whole. Stone and tropical fruits abound, loading the palate with flavors of peaches, cream and lemon meringue. It’s thoroughly delicious without a hint of wood. - P.G.
"In the beginning... there weren't a whole lot choices for a really great white blend. Then, through a stroke of luck and/or great intention, nine wine varietals, Pinot Gris among them, came together and really liked each other. Together, they produced a wine that was delightful, sublime and just plain yummy. And we called this wine Evolution. Wine lovers loved it. They paired it with spicy Asian, Indian, Mexican and Caribbean foods. Or with a jambalaya. Word spread. And, soon, Evolution White was advancing the entire wine universe one bottle at a time." - Winery Notes. This lush, tropical blend has flavors of nectarine and citrus, finishes crisp and is loved by an overwhelming majority of those who try it. Made from the following grapes: Pinot Gris, White Riesling, Muscat, Gewurztraminer, Muller-Thurgau, Semillon, Pinot Blanc, Sylvaner, and Chardonnay.
