The 2016 growing season was exemplary for this white southern Rhone grape. The vines produced generous amounts of full clusters, which were thinned to heighten the quality and focus the intensity of these grapes. The resulting wine dances with bright acidity, white pepper, and enticing tropical fruit flavors. A favorite of the staff and the wine club last year, we expect this wine will again be sought after. A perfect complement to the other Rhone varietals we grow, this wine also stands alone as a strong single varietal, giving a unique option to the popular Viognier. Exciting and adventurous pairings include spaghetti with oysters, butternut squash soup, or rabbit in a mustard sauce.
