2013 Reserve Nellie Mae

The Wine
Beautiful floral aromas with tropical pineapple and citrus on the palate. This wine is a tribute to the women in our lives. Nellie is our grandmother who is a huge inspiration to us (she also helped crush the Roussanne and make the wine) and Mae is a name that crosses both of our backgrounds representing some of the strongest and most passionate women we know.

The Winemaking
Fermented brand new French Oak puncheons (large format wine barrels) for about 3 weeks. Fermenting the the barrel creates a creamy texture in the wine without heavily oaking it. The wine was transferred to stainless steel at dryness.

Tasting notes

This is the first vintage of our Reserve level Nellie Mae. Its makeup is identical to our Nellie Mae - 60% Viognier / 40% Roussanne white Rhône style blend. For our Reserve level we barrel fermented the wines in brand new French oak for a very light oak influence. Beautiful floral aromas with pineapple and butterscotch on the palate.

Production notes

Barrel fermented in brand new French oak for 20 days and aged in stainless steel. Very light oak influence from the barrels give this wine a wonderful butterscotch flavor
