Description
 

A little age has been kind to this bright, yet delicate white wine, which has continued to age beautifully, rounding out and developing a more weighty texture and integrated structure. Drinking great now and will continue to age and mature for years to come.

This Marsanne/Roussanne co-ferment has honeyed bees wax and citrusy aromas with flavors of Meyer lemon and honey, laced in minerality 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, white fish, 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.
