Atrea White Rhone Blend Mendocino County the Choir 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

The classic roussanne/viognier aromas of orange blossoms, honeysuckle, jasmine and dried yellow fruits are evocative of the Northern Rhone. The broad, lush palate and harmonious acidity reflect the low-yield, alluvial gravelly clay loam soils and the warm climate of the inland Sanel Valley, which are ideal for white Rhone varietals. A wildflower honey tone adds complexity, and the wine finishes dry but with richness and persistence.
