This is an extremely enjoyable Rhone-style white blend from Kivelstadt Cellars. The previous vintage was one of our most popular white wines and this vintage is more of the same. Bright fruit flavors and a crisp and refreshing finish make this wine a crowdpleaser, but its complexity and depth make it a true stunner and a great value at this price point. Pair with roasted chicken or white sauce pasta dishes. 50% Marsanne, 50% Roussanne. 330 cases produced.
