Evolution Lucky No. 9 is both complex and approachable, with an intensely aromatic and flavourful blend of white varietals that create a wine with depth of interest and versatility in pairing. Spicy and floral on the nose, this wine is lush and tropical on the palate, with a soft and round sweetness that is tempered by a burst of citrus, leaving the finish clean and crisp. The wine goes just about anything, but especially shines when sipped alongside Thai curry, Tandoori chicken, spicy tuna rolls, or a poolside on a hot summer day.
The main goal of the Evolution series is to make a wine that appears effortless – easy drinking, relaxing – but in reality is quite complex. Producing a proprietary blend like Evolution is a combination of art and science. Winemaker Alex Sokol Blosser continues the tradition of Evolution Lucky No. 9 – making it easy-to-drink and food-friendly – through careful selection of quality fruit and blending together with the winemaking team.

This nonvintage blend is best identified by its edtion number—this latest being #20. It's a runaway success, cleverly incorporating up to eight different varieties.

Here the citrusy aromatics are principally from Muscat, while a touch of Sémillon adds a lick of lanolin to the tangy, juicy fruit.See detailed press review
