Vineyard Notes

These Roussanne grapes were grown at the Camp 4 Vineyard which lies a couple of miles southeast of Roblar Winery.  A small amount of Viognier from Roblar Estate Vineyard was added to highlight the floral notes of this rich and flavorful wine.

Harvest:  October 5th

Production Notes

Fermentation:  The grapes were picked in the cool morning and immediately pressed.  After chilling and settling the juice, the clear juice was racked into French oak barrels and fermented at a cool temperature to retain fresh fruit flavors while gaining roundness during barrel fermentation.

Cooperage / Aging:  The wine was aged for 4 months in 2-4 year old French oak barrels. 

Bottling Date:  January 27, 2017
