Sine Qua Non Albino 2001
Established in 1994, Sine Qua Non is possibly one of the most famous Californian cult wineries. The creation of maverick winemaker, Manfred Krankl, this winery is world-famous for producing miniscule quantities of unique Rhône Valley-inspired blends using estate-grown and purchased fruit from some of the greatest vineyards across the Central Coast. Albino from the 2001 vintage is a blend of 46% Chardonnay, 40% Roussanne and 14% Viognier from the legendary Alban and Stolpman Vineyards. Though incredibly full-bodied, rich and intense, SQN whites have a remarkable capacity to age and this is now absolutely perfectly in its prime drinking window with flavours of stone fruits, citrus oils, griddled nuts and honeysuckle.
