Full bodied white wine blend with fruit and flower aromatics, so much going on with this wine! Aromas of apricot and yellow apple with a hint of vanilla. On the palate, non-aromatic sweet Meyer lemon, Asian apple, pear and an elegant stony minerality. Old world in style, full mouthfeel/luxurious texture with a hint of honeycomb on the lasting finish.
Varietals: 36% Viognier, 30% Grenache Blanc, 24% Roussanne, 10% Marsanne

Winemaking: Vinified separately- all varietals were whole cluster pressed and cold settled for 2 to 4 days and racked to stainless steel for fermentation.

All wines were left on the gross lees five to six weeks followed by resting on fine lees for about six weeks. Batonage was performed to enhance mouthfeel and texture.
