2016 Pastoral Blanc
White Rhone Blend
Our FINAL vintage of our flagship white Rhone blend. This vintage we broke the tradition of Roussanne being the leading variety, as the 2016 Viognier was especially good, and bright and we blended in some Vermentino for the first time.
This new blend is 45% Viognier, 25% Roussanne, 25% Marsanne, and 5% Vermentino. The Roussanne, Marsanne, and Viognier, are from the esteemed Saralee's Vineyard, in Russian River Valley.
We invested in th 4 years of cellar aging to allow this wine to shine, and its a youthful experience, once again belaying the myth that white wines don't age.
