I practice minimal intervention winemaking, enabling each grape to fully express itself. Using this winemaking philosophy allows me to craft food friendly wines of great character." Read less

A Rhone-style white blend; kind of a cross between the zesty acidity of Sauv Blanc with the soft, wide body of Chardonnay (though it contains neither grape).



Tasting Notes:

The Roussanne brings honeydew, kiwi and lemon custard elements, while the Grenache Blanc adds great character with a spicy, peppery core and silky texture. Adding the Viognier gives the wine beautiful honeysuckle aromas coupled with nuances of white peach, pear and tropical fruit. Our 2009 Ambiance is a full bodied wine with plenty of personality and mouth coating goodness!
