Aromas of honeycrisp apple, pineapple, overripe mango awaken the senses. Flavors of lychee, fresh apricot, honeycomb, and a zip of key lime dance across the palate. A nutty dryness lingers on the finish. A rare twist on a classic Rhone blend with the addition of Chardonnay.
Chardonnay was pressed whole cluster into a stainless steel tank and the malo-lactic fermentation was blocked. Viognier was picked early to add fruitiness and acidity. A small percentage of Roussanne was barrel fermented and aged in neutral french oak.
