Pale green-gold in the glass, this mesmerizing wine stays nimble on its feet while showcasing this vintage’s soft, round fruit.
Fermented in contact with the skins in the red-wine style, this Viognier has texture and tannin, depth and height that you find in typical white wines. This rarely made ancient style is known as “orange wine”, named for the unusual color it can impart, often ranging from pale pink to bright orange. Floral & lush.
Rich yet crisp, semi-sweet but well delineated, La Donella is flexible, assertive, and delicious.
On the nose a lemon-lime character predominates, with notes of celery, jasmine, and peach puff pastry creating a sense of intrigue. This Pinot has good weight and drinkability and its richness brings out an Anjou pear flavor in the mouth; but it also has a strong tonic quality with hints of grass and bitter melon to give it some delightful complexity.
The Ratio Blanco is a blend of Viognier (55%) and Sauvignon Blanc (44%), with just a touch of Pinot Grigio. It is bright, fruity and refreshing, with a marvelous aroma combining floral and citrus notes. Its label pays homage to the history of racing with an image of the bicycle that won the first Tour de France in 1903!
The 2015 Roussanne comes in a light golden hue with a slight emerald tint. It has a honeyed, grassy bouquet with notes of lemon-lime, gooseberry, thorn pear, and wax; some nectarine scents emerge as well after the bottle has been open a while. Smooth, dry, and seamless with good power, this wine tastes more like a Rhone white without sacrificing any of that great West Coast fruit.

On the nose one discovers Meyer lemon and green apple with highlights of peach and the sorts of cut grass scents characteristic of wines made from this grape; spring flowers, cider, and honeycomb round out the bouquet. There is a hint of pineapple as well, and all the fruit flavors, together with a hint of honeydew melon and resin, are reaffirmed in the mouth, tart and deliciously balanced.
Pale gold, the color alludes to the richness of the wine. The nose is filled with fruit: ripe apricot, lemon, strawberry, with hints of marjoram, birch and peach. In the mouth, the wine is broad, dry, and luscious, with flavors of alpine strawberries and hibiscus, and with a little bit of melon, resin and even a touch of orange oil on the finish. It is well balanced and smooth, with very pure flavor.
