Winemaker's Notes

Varietal Content: 85% Viognier, 10% Marsanne, 3% Roussanne, 2% Muscat

In this vintage, Bonterra has layered sister White Rhone varietals Marsanne and Roussanne to the blend, adding a dimension of complexity. Marsanne provides a rich texture and green apple flavor, while Roussanne contributes pear and haunting floral notes.

As you begin to drink, powerful aromas of fresh cut nectarines and white peaches, laced with floral notes of orange blossom and honeysuckle, remain a signature of this wine. Complex fruit flavors of apricot and peach are overlaid with notes of oak vanilla. The wine is crisp, yet creamy, a grand alternative to everyday whites.
