Mistral is a unique Rhone or “GSM” blend with aromas of blueberries, strawberries, vanilla, lavender and spiced incense. The red and blue fruit flavors are deep and chewy, intermixed
with black licorice, dark cocoa, roasted coffee beans and Red Mountain scorched earth and minerals. Grenache is truly the star in this fruity blend.

Our grapes were hand sorted and mechanically destemmed into a small bin for a 1-2 day cold soak to bring out flavors and color. Yeast and nutrients were then added to start a 7-10
day fermentation. Then the “free run” wine was pumped into barrels and the remaining skins were gently pressed to extract remaining wine. into the barrels. The wine then went through a malolactic fermentation which softens the wine.
Food Pairing Notes
Pairs with goat cheese, lamb skewers, high wind warnings and sideways rain.
