Calcareous Red Bordeaux Blend Paso Robles Twisted Sisters 2006
The 2006 White Rhone blend has a nose full of honey suckle and .spring blossoms. Along with blood orange and honey the mouth has toasted almonds. Abundant bright acids lead to a lasting finish with surprising weight. With a focus on making Rhone varietals from the western hills of Paso Robles, we are excited to produce our first blend of white Rhone varietals. The grapes were hand picked in the vineyard and then hand sorted in the winery. They were lightly whole-cluster bladder pressed and racked varietal specific to neutral French oak barrels for fermentation. Post-fermentation, the wine was sulfured, not allowing any malolactic fermentation, retaining the wine's natural acidity. The barrels used for each of our wines are carefully selected from artesian coopers, making barrels from the best forest within France, Eastern Europe and America. The 2006 Rhone whites were aged sur-lies for 10 months in neutral French and American oak barrels. The final blend consists of 58% Rousanne, 33% Marsanne, and 9% Viognier.
