Tasting notes

Our 2014 Blancaneaux is extremely expressive. This year’s blend is made up of more than 50% Viognier, which creates a heightened fragrance of exotic flavors that include pineapples and white peaches. Round in the mouth and almost bold in its delivery of aromatics, the wine exhibits a freshness from the ideal balance of natural acidity. Enjoy impressions of Meyer lemon, papaya, and tropical fruits along with a hint of minerality from the Roussanne and Marsanne.

Production

Vintage Notes

Winter was drier than normal, but we received more rain than in 2013. The growing season was consistently warm, yet never excessively hot, and our fruit achieved excellent concentration because there was less vine vigor than the year before. Veraison came early as did harvest once again. We began picking white grapes in August.

Viticulture

6.5 acres of white grapes grown on the property at the base of Mt. St. John, all three varietals come from vines that are more than ten years old and now showing signs of maturity. 

Vinification

  • Harvested early morning by hand
  • Cold-fermented in small stainless steel tanks 
  • Sur lie aging in stainless steel tanks
