vaalea

Our only white blend, the name is Finnish and means “light, fair, bright, or blond”.

This blend consists of grenache blanc, roussanne, and viognier.

We look to pick our white varietals early. We ferment slowly up to two months in steel tanks. The varietals are blended together right after they have been harvested and pressed. A progressive fermentation. They do not go through malolactic fermentation, and are fined and filtered before bottling. The resulting wine is dry, high in acidity, crisp, and fruit forward.
