Description
 

Our Marsanne/Roussanne blend has waxy and citrusy aromas with flavors of Meyer lemon and honey that come together beautifully in this structured, medium-bodied white wine. Aged and fermented in old French Oak barrels for 11 months before being bottled unfined and unfiltered.

Pair with shellfish, roasted chicken, veal, and pork dishes.


Winemaking

Two tons Marsanne and one ton Roussanne were pressed together and sent to a stainless steel tank for 24 hour cold settling. The juice was then racked into old French Oak barrels where it underwent an 11-day native fermentation. After primary and 100% malolactic fermentation, the wine was aged sur lie and was bottled unfined and unfiltered after 11 months of barrel age.
