Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2016 differs 2015, due to the omission of Marsanne and a higher percentage of Roussanne. This has produced a wine that is broad and rich on the palate, yet still keeps a vibrant acidity on the finish. The aromatics are dominated by citrus leaf, honeycomb and lemon custard coupled with notes of white flowers, sweet spices, and hazelnuts.
Winemaker's Notes
We start out with several lots, some co-fermented, while most varietals are kept separate. We ferment in a combination of stainless steel barrels and French oak (mostly neutral). The wine rests on its gross lees until being blended together at bottling after 11 months in barrel.
