The Viognier was barrel fermented in 3 year old French Oak barrels, 50% of these barrels were allowed to go through ML after primary fermentation was complete. Lees was stirred in all barrels 2 times a month for 6 mos. The Rousanne and Grenache Blanc were cold fermented in small stainless tanks and not allowed to go through ML, to preserve the exotic aromas and flavors.
The Blend was assembled in tank after 10mos and then bottled. This wine has become a mainstay for us and our go to wine in the spring and summer…who am I kidding? We love it year-round! Enjoy this beautiful wine with light salads, chicken or salmon. Or my new favorite dish…seafood paella! Intelligent Design…you decide.
