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.
