We poured the same love and dedication into this wine that we do into the children and the outcome was beautiful. We are so proud to share it with you.
38% Marsanne, 32% Viognier, 30% Grenache Blanc
This Rhône varietal blend from the Margerum Estate Vineyard that is handcrafted especially for Anneliese School.
Vineyard Region: Los Olivos District
Vintage Conditions: Another very early harvest beginning August 3rd. Heat waves perpetuated picking, otherwise summer was consistently mild. The new normal is erratic weather patterns. The wetter winter did have the effect of percolating soils and reducing the salts in some of the vineyards. Clear skies and warm spring weather allowed for consistent flowering overall, with average to below average yields. We enjoyed fairly even ripening and picking was rhythmic.
Maturation: This wine was matured for 10 months in our cold cellar in 75% stainless steel, 25% neutral French oak barriques.
