2018 Arousal

69% chardonnay, 31% viognier

Alluring aromas of honeysuckle, limestone, white peach and ripe apricot build anticipation for flavors of clover honey, spiced pear, apricot and nectarine stone. The lush, stimulating mouthfeel captivates the mid-palate and provokes a dry, desirable finish. Pairs well with Thai Cuisine or seasonal salads.

75 cases crafted. Unfiltered/Unfined. Vegan

Winemaker Notes

Blending has always been a creative process for me as a winemaker. To create a wine that's greater than the sum of its part is like finding a couple freshly washed 20's in the dryer. Clean, crisp and elating. This fresh white wine is certainly a prelude to any memorable event. Dinner will become more exiting, a movie with popcorn more funny, romantic or adventurous. Who can't use a bit more Arousal in their lives? Who?
