2015 Shepherds Mark 11.11 Case
In the early 1900’s, pioneering Sheepherders left their mark on the Horse Heaven Hills in the form of rock monuments. Many still stand along the ridge line of our Estate Vineyard, Destiny Ridge Vineyard. Shepherds Mark has been our signature white wine since we began with a classic blend of Rhone white varietals. This Roussanne-based blend offers colorful, floral-accented orchard fruit scents and flavors and it has lush, expansive stone fruit character and a bracing citrus quality that allows it to work well with richer fish or poultry dishes and heavy cream sauces. The winemaking team at Alexandria Nicole Cellars were the first to produce this exotic blend using Roussanne, Marsanne, and Viognier in Washington State and have done so annually since 2004. Complex and balanced to age for at least a few more years.
