Wine Maker Notes
In the same style as is traditional in the Rhone Valley’s famed Cote Rotie appellation, Viognier grapes are co-fermented with Syrah grapes. Blending small quantities of white grapes in red fermentation has been a common procedure in the Rhone Valley for many years as it softens the wine and makes it more complex and elegant. This blend was aged in new French oak barrels for nine months and then coarsely filtered before bottling to conserve its natural essence, raw expression, and Mediterranean elegance.
Delicious with grilled red meats and hearty stews. Serve slightly cooler than room temperature.
