You are in for a treat with this new vin de paille
style dessert wine. Quite juicy, full of apple, pear and quince fruit aligned with apricots, hazelnuts and a hint of lavender
2008 brought unseasonable dryness to the Beeswax Vineyard in Arroyo Seco, with low humidity and few rain showers, providing deeply concentrated and flavorful grenache blanc and roussanne for a vin de paille style dessert wine. Hand picked and dried on vineyard mats for three weeks, the fruit was gently foot stomped at the winery to release the sugar and flavors from the desiccated grapes.
Blend: 51% Grenache Blanc, 49% Roussanne
