2014 Beachcomber Mendocino County White Blend

Drawing inspiration from the great white Rhône blends of France, yet grown just 15 miles from the Pacific Ocean in Mendocino County, this blend of Viognier, Marsanne and Roussanne features lovely white floral aromatics, followed by lush stone-fruit and ginger flavors on the palate. The fruit remains focused and fresh due to a vein of elevated acidity that runs throughout. Enjoy this delicious white blend alongside richer seafood dishes.

Assyrtiko, the white wine grape of the Greek island Santorini, is grown by training the vines over several years to grow in the shape of a basket. The grape bunches grow on the inside, protected from the harsh sun and wind, and the leaves grow on the outside of the basket.
