2018 Shepherds Mark
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 Destiny Ridge Vineyard. Alexandria Nicole Cellars was the first to produce this classic Estate Rhone blend
of Roussanne, Marsanne, and Viognier in Washington State, and it has been our signature white wine since 2004. This year’s Roussanne-based blend displays pleasing floral notes, backed by stone fruit, and tropical aromas of grapefruit and mango on the nose. A weighty
palate filled with tangerine, honeysuckle and Meyer lemon gives way to a bright backbone of acidity, balancing out the wine and providing a sustained and elegant finish. The intensity of this wine makes it a perfect candidate for rich fish or poultry dishes. Try with sautéed
chicken with celery-root puree. Served chilled.
