A Rhone-inspired Estate Blend of two amazingly complementary grapes.
In this singular blend, the intense stone fruit and floral aromas of Viognier link to the orange peel citrus accents and ethereal texture of Marsanne. Whole bunch pressed, fermented in neutral French oak barrels, and aged on lees for 6 months to promote texture and complexity.
The trick with Viognier-Marsanne is to capture exactly the right blend of the two grapes, allowing the Viognier’s chameleon-like versatility to promote and accentuate Marsanne’s comparatively subtle profile. This blend of 17% Marsanne has proven effective in promoting the finer varietal intricacies of the grape without diminishing the fruitful vivacity of the Viognier.
83% Viognier, 17% Marsanne
On the palate, textured notes of caramel and coconut balance tones of clover and orange peel. A long finish rounds out the smooth and elegant palate.
