The Primal Roots White Blend is a fusion of four varietals—Viognier, French Colombard, Riesling, and Gewürztraminer. The Viognier makes up 50% of the blend and provides honeysuckle, peach, and apricot as well as a creamy texture. The French Colombard adds the bright and crisp acidity. It also contributes a hint of spice to the blend. Riesling lends a very floral orange blossom note, which balances well with the fruit. Gewürztraminer is known for its lychee and spicy characters. This variety adds complexity to the final blend, making it a truly sensual and captivating wine.
The fruit is harvested at optimal ripeness, when the flavors and acids are in balance. The fruit is crushed and pressed as soon as it arrives to the winery. We clarify juice so there are no more than 2% solids. It is kept at a cool temperature throughout fermentation, 55-60°F, which retains much of the volatile aromas. After fermentation is complete, the juice is racked to assist in clarification. It does not go through malolactic fermentation and is not aged on oak. This blend is made to be bright, fruity, mouthwatering, and sensual.
Varieties: 50% Viognier, 20% French Colombard, 15% Riesling, 15% Gewürztraminer
The harvest year 2011 proved to be of high quality among the white varietals. The growing season was mild, allowing the grapes to ripen slowly and steadily. Most of the blend, 70%, is from the North Valley, and majority of the balance is from Central Coast. Both areas provided grapes that had developed concentrated flavors and were true to variety.
