Description 

Tranche Slice Of Pape Blanc Columbia Valley
Vibrant melon and stone fruit aromas with white peach, lemon zest, almond blossom and a hint of flinty reduction. The wine is firm and textured on entry, with fleshy flavors of white peach and nectarine filling out the palate. Dry and focused on the finish, this white Rhone blend gives excellent mineral length and persistence.


Winemaker Notes

The 2011 vintage marks the first inclusion of Marsanne into our Slice of Pape Blanc blend. Fruit was hand-harvested and whole-bunch pressed into neutral French oak barrels and egg-shaped concrete fermenters. Native yeast fermentation and heavy stirring of barrel lees helped build texture and complexity, while partial concrete maturation brought energy, focus, and minerality to the finished blend.
