2015 Pastoral Blanc
White Rhone Blend
Our latest release of our flagship white Rhone blend. Keeping with tradition, the primary variety is Roussanne (50%) blended with 30% Marsanne, 15% Viognier, and 5% Grenache Blanc.
The Roussanne, Marsanne, and Viognier, are from the esteemed Saralee's Vineyard, the Grenache Blanc from Catie's Corneer in Russian River Valley. The Roussanne, Marsanne and Grenache Blanc are the only plantings in the Russian River AVA.
This year's complex blend is only 12.5% alcohol (difficult to achieve in a balanced Roussanne) and is bright and vibrant, yet aromatic and complex.
Enjoy during dungeness crab season on the west coast, and also pairs beautifully with lobster, scallops and similar fare.
