One of many Kenny Likitprakong productions, including Hobo, Banyan, Camp, Edith & Ida and Ghostwriter. Folk Machine was created in 2005 almost strictly for the production of Pinot Noir but has since expanded to include all esoteric bottlings like Charbono, Carignan and other dreamy gems.From Kenny: "This White Light is another fun, easy drinking, summery, light, and affordable wine. Our goals have stayed the same - bottle something fresh with acid and some mineral and retain that sort of salty, briny character that the Tocai Friulano has, but tone it down with the fruit and aromatics of Riesling and Verdelho.
The 2022 is 42% Tocai Friulano from Mendocino, 18% Riesling from Arroyo Seco, 17% Verdelho from Suisun Valley, 15% Albariño from Borden Ranch, and 8% Sauvignon Blanc from Potter Valley.
White Light was inspired by a trip to the vortexes of Sedona, Arizona, but maybe a little Velvet Underground too. I’m not that much into New Age thinking, but tell me something will feel good and I’m a believer."
A mix of delicate citrus, groovy orchard fruits, beeswax and sea salt spray with a freshness and zippy acid that fulfills Kenny's fundamental concept for this wine. It's light and breezy but has subtle mineral complexity too. Really unique blend of grapes for this from a notably talented new-age winemaker.
Serve well-chilled and enjoy with creamy fettuccine pasta, Greek takeout or some seafood, either raw or lightly cooked.
