grapefruit, lime zest, honeysuckle & passionfruit
The fruit for this wine came from our estate Culloden and Spice Cabinet vineyards in the acclaimed Horse Heaven Hills.
The Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier grapes were machine harvested separately in the early morning hours to allow the fruit to arrive at the winery cool. Once at the winery, the juice was gently pressed away from the grape skins. The freshly pressed juice was allowed to cold settle for 48 hours and then clean racked off the solids. Fermentation was initiated with specific yeasts known to enhance expression of each of the two varieties. The Viognier portion of this blend went into neutral barrels and a clay amphora where it finished primary fermentation.
75% Sauvignon Blanc, 25% Viognier
