Created in the press, we mixed a tiny Chardonnay block with two even smaller white Rhone blocks from our Home Ranch, discovering a perfect match among lots too small to be kept separate. The mixed juice was fermented in neutral oak barrels, helping integrate and open the flavors. The 28% Roussanne and 12% Viognier are not in the majority, yet they highly influence the aroma. In particular the Viognier bestows an orange flower perfume that is
its signature. The Chardonnay contributes more textural strengths, and supports
the often shapeless build of Rhone whites.
