“It’s about being true and authentic to the classic styles of wines in the world.

Throughout our Estate Vineyards, we cultivate a diverse collection of some of the world’s most interesting grape varietals.”

Lauri Corliss

2015 Pape Blanc Estate

Vibrant melon and stone fruit aromas are complimented by notes of honeysuckle, citrus, white tea and baking spice. The wine is fresh and tactile on the palate with flavors of cantaloupe, white peach and nectarine, enhanced by flint and lightly toasted notes. This energetic white Rhone blend finishes dry and focused, with excellent minerality and a light phenolic edge.


Winemaker Notes

Our 2015 white Rhone blocks were hand-harvested and
whole-bunch pressed into neutral French oak barrels and
egg-shaped concrete fermenters. Native yeast fermentation
and heavy stirring of barrel lees helped build texture and
complexity, while partial concrete maturation brought
energy, focus, and minerality to the finished wine.
