Tasting Notes

Our 2016 Enchantress white Rhône blend is seductive with vibrant aromas of tropical flowers, summer peach, pineapple, guava, and Gala apple. The palate is laced with rich flavors of tropical fruit, summer citrus, and melon coupled with a balanced crisp acidity on the finish that pulls you back for more.

Pair this wine with light to light to medium body cheeses, scallops, oysters, shellfish, seafood, poultry and good friends.

Winemaking: Early morning handpicks of the Marsanne and Roussanne at Cass Vineyard where immediately pressed while the grapes where cold from the night before preserving the freshness and fruit intensity. The wine was then cold fermented in stainless steel with limited exposer to oxygen, retaining the subtle nuances of the crisp fruit and high-tone esters. Malolactic fermentation was inhibited in the Marsanne and Roussanne, further preserving these qualities.

 

The Grenache Blanc came from Alta Colina Vineyard, Paso Robles, California. The wine was cold fermented in stainless steel with limited exposer to oxygen, retaining the subtle nuances of the crisp fruit and high-tone esters.
