Vineyard Notes:

The Marsanne in this blend comes from our estate in Sonoma Carneros. The area is known for its cooler temperatures, which allows for long ripening time and full flavor development. The Roussanne is grown in our Sonoma Coast vineyard. The fog intrudes and lingers until noon on summer days, providing an ideal growing environment for this unusual Northern Rhône varietal.

Production Notes:

The grapes are handpicked and de-stemmer. This very gentle process minimizes the pick-up of bitter components from the skins and seeds. The grapes are then pumped directly to our tank press which gently extracts the juice from the skins and seeds. From there the juice is pumped to a settling tank where it is chilled to 55 degrees F. The tank is racked the next day and fermentation begins.

Winemaker Notes:

Marsanne and Roussanne are the Northern Rhone Valley’s most important white wine grape varieties and are regularly blended together. There are less than 250 combined acres of these grapes in California, making them a rare varietal for the state. This blend has notes of honey, orange and pineapple with a wonderful mineral character. We did not expose the wine to oak aging, allowing the fresh and lively fruit character to shine. Serve slightly chilled.
