Calling all futuristic lovers! Scholium Project's inventive and inexhaustable philosopher/winemaker Abe Schoener has enjoyed a long history with the Lost Slough Vineyard in California's Sacramento River Valley, a site he considers undistinguished but whose grapes yield unusually good wine from Verdelho (for some of his most popular bottlings). Blowout is Scholium's first sparkling wine, made from 80% Verdelho and 20% Gruner Veltliner from Lost Slough. In Abe's words: "The wine is born out of a desire for speed--for immediate gratification. It is a sparkling wine based not on the time-consuming and deferral-demanding Methode Traditionel of secondary fermentation in bottle, but on the method of immediate bubble-inducing that we call the METHODE FUTURISTE. Yes. This is a carbonated wine." And it is delicious! Generous citrus and green apple fruit, with mouth-watering bubbles and a hint of salt make it an excellent pairing for a crunchy salad course, sushi, or cheese. Ariana Rolich
