Tasting Notes
One of the many cool things about our partnership with the Petznick Family from D.A. Ranch is that we now have access to very small amounts of high-quality Verde Valley grapes thoughtfully managed by our own Jeff Hendricks. This Seyval Blanc came from the same pick as D.A. Ranch’s “Willow White,” but instead of fermenting in stainless steel, we fermented our portion in one neutral and one brand new French oak barrel. While the “Willow White” is slightly more crisp and refreshing, our release has more spice and brioche character and a little more roundness on the palate. Perhaps this grape is more versatile than we first thought!
