The Honeymoon blend is built with bones. Balanced acidity, complexity from aging on lees; honey, beeswax, and straw. A portion of the French Colombard juice picked in late October went into the Sparkling, but another portion was fermented in neutral barrels into a still wine and blended with neutral barrel fermented and aged Roussanne. Both components were aged on lees for 11 months. French Colombard’s mother is Chenin blanc, and the daughter has many of the mother’s characteristics. Honeymoon has a perfectly fleshy body considering it is under 12% alcohol.
