2018 Turbine White, Rhône Blend
Two family-owned vineyards are the source for our Turbine White. Viognier and Marsanne are grown at Landa Vineyard located in the eastern foothills in the Sonoma Valley appellation. The Viognier adds floral aromatics while the Marsanne is a beautiful blending wine adding mid-palate richness along with bright acidity.
Grenache Blanc and Picpoul Blanc are grown nearby at Snow Vineyard. The Grenache Blanc adds long length and balanced alcohol to the blend, with rich notes of citrus and herbs. The Picpoul Blanc, known as the “lip stinger” adds great acidity and zest. Together, these Rhône varietals make for a layered and delightful sipper.
Beautifully floral with loads of orange blossom and balanced by bright citrus, komquat, and melon rind. The palate is fresh with great verve—nice body but crisp acid running throughout. Overall mouthwatering with flavors of green melon, alpine strawberry and meyer lemon. Comprised of 30% Viognier, 28% Grenache Blanc, 26% Marsanne, 16% Picpoul Blanc.
