I’ve always operated on the philosophy that wine is made in the vineyard and that it is a winemaker’s duty to showcase the beautiful bounty that Mother Nature has already produced. This is especially true of the Inspiration white blend, as the end result is much more than just the sum of its parts. Under the right guidance, the varietals will reveal their naturally generous and seductive aromas, flavors, and textures in harmony. If overly manipulated, the wine will be disjointed, overwhelming, and contrived. As two of the most distinguished sites for Rhône varietals in Santa Ynez Valley, Rodney’s Estate Vineyard and Camp Four Vineyard make this endeavor easy. These sites are perfectly situated to produce ripe, unctuous fruit, yet still maintain the natural acidity needed to keep the ripeness in check. A very modest application of primarily neutral oak further allowed for pure varietal expression, resulting in a hedonistic yet incredibly balanced blend of Viognier, Marsanne, Roussanne, and Grenache Blanc that lives up to its name, as it will inspire you again and again to share it over a good meal with your favorite people.
