Luck or Intention?

Sokol Blosser NV Evolution
White Wine from Willamette Valley, Oregon

We discovered this bottle at a local wine bar near our home, it's a classic blend of nine white grapes, each pressed separately, adding its own character. It was the perfect pairing for my peach cobbler (served warm) and my husbands scallop salad (also served warm).

I love how the wine maker asks us to consider if this delicious wine was merely a product of luck? Or Intention? Clearly, there is someone very drunk and very brilliant behind the makings of this rare breed of white wine because it continues to remain a natural selection.
