Tasting Notes: Loving all things Rhône, winemaker Dwight Sick produces a blend which plays homage to the herbal, rich and fragrant wines of Côtes du Rhône AOC. Consisting of  63% White Grenache, 22% Viognier and 15% Marsanne, this charming wine offers a subtle nose layered with citrus fruit, savoury herbs and Asian pear aromas. The palate explodes with a textural battle between the mouth watering effects of fresh acidity and the mouth coating qualities of rich tropical fruit and light tannins. The acid wins leaving the finish crisp and tangy. May develop further with some more time in the bottle. Drink 2013-2016.
