2017 Gewurztraminer and Pinot Gris "Spicy Pig" Blend
‘Gewürz’ means spice in German and P.I.G. is our three-letter code for Pinot Gris. So, our winemaking team lovingly refers to this wine as Spicy Pig! Pinot Gris fermented in tank adds notes of fresh apples and pears, while barrel fermented Gewürtraminer adds musky aromatics and a supple texture.
2017 Cold Fiddle White Wine Blend
Chenin Blanc sets the stage with peach and fresh melon flavors. Semillon adds depth and texture to the wine. Finally, a drier version of Muscat adds spice and effusive floral character without adding sweetness. This wine is playful, but complex.
2017 Limited Release Austral White Wine
For the Austral this year, we co-fermented a blend of Roussanne, Marsanne, and Viognier together in a barrel. The result is a seamless, rich wine. We layered tank-fermented Grenache Blanc and Roussanne for brightness while a touch more of Viognier from barrel brought ripe stone fruit and texture.
