VARIETAL BLEND
75% Marsanne, 25% Grenache Blanc


Experiments in the cellar can be risky but this one gave way to brilliance. We aged this wine an additional year in a large-format (600L) new French oak barrel and loved the result. The wine gained complexity & a kiss of honey on the palate without losing the allure of bright fruit it had in its youth. This wine treads the line between opulence and modesty with intricate aromatics & flavors. Honey-hued aromas of toasted marshmallow and marmalade are underscored by tart key lime on the nose. The palate has a comfortable weight to it, with crisp white nectarine and indulgent pineapple flavors. Download tech sheet »

93 points - Rich Cook, Wine Reviews Online

"A very complex wine, thanks to the addition of 25% Grenache Blanc and some time in a 600 liter new French oak barrel.  It's boldly floral and honeyed in aroma, with a palate of bright citrus complemented by notes of nut, vanilla, faint smoke and subtle dried herbs.  It has the mid-palate weight you crave in a Rhône styled white but manages a crisp refreshing finish.  Beautifully made!"
