2018 Sonoma Valley Casteñada White

2018 Sonoma Valley Casteñada White

Similar to its red counterpart, our Casteñada White is a field blend of exclusively Rhône varietals - specifically Marsanne, Roussanne, Grenache Blanc, and Viognier. In 2018, we had a long, cool season resulting in grapes that maintained their acidity and a wine that is just as pretty on the nose as it is on the palate. Crisp and textured, the 2018 has hints of apricot flower, peach, and fresh lemon. You won't find a better pairing for a fall afternoon.

2018 was one of those magical years. With a mild spring, the early growing season plodded along at a relatively normal pace. Once the berries set, we knew we had a healthy and full crop. So full, in fact, we did a number of fruit-thinning passes to reduce load on the vines. Even with this, we were happy to see an above average harvest with superb quality. We started picking in earnest after Labor Day, with cool, fall weather that allowed us to transfer the grapes in a calm and measured pace. All in all, 2018 will go down as a year to remember, with wines of true depth and power.
