2014 Pastoral Blanc
White Rhone Blend
Our latest release of our flagship white Rhone blend. Keeping with tradition, the primary variety is Roussanne (45%) blended with 30% Marsanne, 20% Viognier, and 5% Grenache Blanc.
The Roussanne and Marsanne are from the esteemed Saralee's Vineyard, the Viognier and Grenache Blanc from Catie's Corneer in Russian River Valley.
This year's complex blend is only 12.5% alcohol (difficult to achieve in a balanced Roussanne) and is bright and textured, yet aromatic and complex. Bottled aged for 4 years!
