Pali Wine Company The White Cap 2017
|Region||California, Central Coast|

The fruit for this white Rhone blend is sourced from four vineyards. The Grenache Blanc fruit hails from Jack McGinley in Happy Canyon of Santa Barbara and Morro View Vineyards in San Luis Obispo County. The Marsanne and Roussanne come from Camp 4 Vineyard in Santa Ynez Valley. The fourth varietal, Viognier, is from Jorian Hill Vineyard in Ballard Canyon. The wine is fermented in a combination of stainless steel and neutral oak barrels. Aged for 5 months in 100% neutral French oak.
This blend of Grenache Blanc, Roussanne, Marsanne and Viognier begins with aromas of lemon preserves on toast with the slightest hint of butter. It tightens up on the sip at first, then opens to show guava-jelly flavors and more lemony elements.
