Our Mom loves to travel and remembers a time before we were born when she tripped away to Marseilles and took a road trip through the south of France. She would spend the afternoon under the shade of an olive tree in the field next to a vineyard she would stumble into – eating bread, cheese and olives, and drinking bottles of delicious white wine.
This year’s Oregon White blend is a tribute to those wines – Viognier, Marsanne and Roussanne grown sustainably and at high elevation in the Rogue Valley and Applegate Valley of southern Oregon. The higher elevation allows for nighttime cool air to pass through which lends a positive influence by adding acidity, and character. We love the intense aromatics which remind us of wild lavender and citrus, and the palate shows some crisp notes and stone fruit along with hints of meyer lemon and more savory herbs like rosemary.
