Who says red wine winemakers can't make white! Oily and rich but fresh- blind I might have guessed deiss pinot blanc. Cool wine from old semillon, muscadelle and palomino.

Semillon, muscadelle, colombard and palomino from old vines. Distinctive and full of interest and character, even when consumed from plastic cups while laying in the grass.

Blend of (mostly)Semillon and Muscadelle. Orange blossom, apple, citrus and wet rock aromas. Full-bodied, with bright acidity and apple, pineapple, spice and mineral flavors. Long finish.
