L’Atelier, the artist’s studio – that was what our intern from Bordeaux called the little studio where we craft our wines. The small cave where we make our wines each vintage has seen its share of creativity. This notion of artistic invention, paired with a sense of style, is what fuels our passion for winemaking. That notion of creative endeavor and a reverence for the classic styles that have influenced our work is what inspires our bottling of L’Atelier, a blend of Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, and Sauvignon Vert.
Wildflower and lemon blossom aromas take one outdoors into the spring evening. The full mid-palate seems to contradict the 12.5% alcohol, but makes sense from vineyards that are dry-farmed and organic. Exotic Mandarin citrus and white pineapple flavors zing along to a finish that refreshes with gooseberry and mineral flavors lingering.
