Viognier Roussanne Marsanne
A beautiful dry white blend composed of the only three white wine grapes permitted to be grown in the Northern Rhône. Inviting aromas of stone fruit with soft herbal notes. Rich with subtle peach, apricot, and Meyer lemon flavours. This textured wine leans to the fuller side but stays smooth and fresh with elegant balance.
Northern Rhone & Savoie, France
The Northern Rhône region experiences a cooler climate than its southern counterpart. The tiny region of Savoie sits to the west bordering Switzerland and is the only alpine wine region in France. Vineyards are often planted at elevations between 250-550 metres but have a uniquely warm microclimate thanks to the southern sun exposure.
