The 2017 ‘Northern White’ is a silky blend of 70% Marsanne and 30% Roussanne, this great wine shows a sumptuous nose of honeysuckle and gardenia with candied white peach. The palate has an old-world feel, with lychee, lemongrass and Pink Lady apple flavors shining brightly.
With Roussanne blended into the Marsanne, the Northern White is more rounded than previous vintages. While maintaining bright qualities, this wine expresses warmer characteristics of melon and peach pit. Citrus notes on the finish provide a lively ending to each sip. Also sourced from Los Oidos, we barrel fermented the Roussanne in neutral French Oak to provide more weight and mouthfeel.
