Aromas of grapefruit and bright lime zest are abundant on the nose, leading into notes of honeysuckle and passionfruit. The racy acidity from the Sauvignon Blanc carries through the mid-palate, rounding out with the savory creamy notes from the Viognier.
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 allowe to cold settle for 48 hours and then clean racked off the solids. Fermentation was initiated with specific yeasts known to enhance the expression of each of the two varieties.
