Our C2 brand is our nod to Albert Michelson - the 1907 Noble award-winning physicist known for his work on measuring the speed of light (he is the "C2" in Einstein's equation E=MC2).
That said, we like to keep our blend unique from year to year. Our 2019 vintage features Albarino (50%), Sauvignon Blanc (40%) and Chardonnay (10%). The result is a refreshing, dry white that is goes down easy on a hot summer afternoon.
Pale yellow in color, the first thing you notice is the lovely pineapple and mango fragrance of this blend. The pineapple comes through in the first sip and is followed by green apple and maybe lemongrass. As you finish your first glass, the refreshing crispness along with the lovely softness of the wine will leave you wanting more.
Each year Team Hovey gets together to combine art and science and come up with our next great blend. The specifics vary year-to-year, but the result is always a light, refreshing, and approachable white wine that can stand alone and pair nicely with a variety of foods.
Food Pairing Notes
The clean, crisp white pairs well with grilled salmon, butter soaked crab and a multitude of cheeses.
