2015 Rockin' One Blanc

Tasting Notes
46% Roussanne, 37% Marsanne, 17% Viognier.  Mirrors of gold reflect hints of Asian pear preserves, melon meringue, candied quince and hawthorn blossom. Essence of freshly whipped butter cream, Meyer lemon custard and white peach balance upon a full yet delicate palate. Soft acidity and stony minerality weave flavors of crushed chamomile, baking spice and toasted cashews that herald a lingering, layered finish kissed by honey tea. Enjoy now until 2020

Winemaking
Looking to bring an added dimension to the ripe fruit of Roussanne and the texture of Marsanne, the 2015 Rockin’ One was fermented and aged for 10 months in seasoned French oak barrels. Hand-picked in the early morning, the cold grapes were pressed within moments after coming off the vine. The long, slow fermentation helped maintain crucial aromatics, while occasional lees stirring helped lend texture and structure to the wine. Unlike Cass’s other white wines, the 2015 Rockin’ One underwent a partial malolactic fermentation.
