I use a concrete egg shaped tank to ferment and age the Grenache Blanc portion of this blend. The premise is that with the egg's shape and the earth's gravitation rotation it creates a vortex inside the egg that stirs the lees on a constant basis as it ages. What I love about the egg is that it keeps the fruit bright, adds a creaminess to the wine, and it brings out the minerality of the fruit. 

A beautiful light golden color, blend has an explosive nose of peach and dried apricot, lemon/lime zest, mineral and white flowers. It’s a rich, opulently full-bodied wine that showcases dried apricots and peaches, Margarita mix, toasted brioche and fresh vanilla bean. What makes this wine, so intriguing is the mineral back bone that keeps the wine fresh.

The blend: 60% Grenache Blanc, 40% Roussanne; 215 cases produced. In the Cohn Zone: drink now - 2025.
