2014 Viognier

Two Shepherds latest release of our restrained style, cool climate Viognier. In 2014 we changed vineyards from Saralee's Vineyard to Catie's Corner. Catie's Corner is named after Saralee's daughter, and is also in the Russian River Valley, the same vineyard we farm our local Grenache Blanc.

Fragrant aromatics of jasmine and white peach, without being over powering as so many California viogner can be. Nice acidity and finish, will pair well with mild curries, shellfish, cream sauces.

Our 'atypical' viognier' is always a big hit with our customers and sells out immediately, so for 2014 we doubled production, to a (whopping) 75 cases.

2013 Marsanne|Roussanne

Our first Marsanne|Roussanne blend from the granitic soils of El Dorado Textural and savory, from 6 hours skin contact, bottle aged for 2.5 years before release to ensure ideal time for enjoyment.

Slightly turbid straw color, aromas of Anjou pear, honey dew melon, and a hint of honeysuckle. On the palate enjoy flavors of yellow apple, melon,  with a savory finish.

Highly recommended to pair with food, seafood, shell fish, Asian cuisine and spicy food dishes.

3.5 barrels - 87 cases crafted.

(Please note, due to skin contact and late racking this wine can be a bit turbid (cloudy.) While many of our Flock like that, if you store the bottle cork up a day before serving, that can mimimize the cloudiness from sediment.)

2014 Trousseau Gris

We are pleased to share our newest release of our only non-Rhone wine, Trousseau Gris, a very obscure grey skinned variety, originally from the Jura in France, and a 'unicorn' even there. The famed Fanucchi Vineyard is the only planting of Trousseau Gris in California, with a total of just 10 acres planted over 40 years ago. The Fanucchi Vineyard is adjacent to our farm in Fulton, which is how William first started making Trousseau Gris, first for personal consumption, and then by demand, he aquiesced into allowing a non-Rhone a part of our portolio.

For the few who tried and loved the 2012 release (only 35 cases), you will be pleased to see the wine return to a similar style. Fermented the first 5 days on the skins, this release has a medium orange, pink color, intense aromatics of a white, and the texture of a light red, basically refusing to be put in a category.

By demand, we upped production to 125 cases, so we would have more of this unique, popular wine to share.

2013 Centime

Centime, French for Penny, is Two Shepherds small annual production of skin fermented Rhone white wines, known as "orange" wine, because of the color the skin contact gives.

Who says orange wines have to be tannic and/or oxidized. If you have had William's unique style of red wines, you may appreciate Centime, a gentler, more approachable orange wine.

The 2013 release is mostly Grenache Blanc from Santa Ynez, with a litte Marsanne and Roussanne from El Dorado blended in.

This wine was crushed and fermented on the skins for 12 days until dry, exactly like a red wine, then very lightly pressed by hand to a neutral barrel, where it aged for 10 months.

Nice structure, minimal tannins for an "orange" wine with aromas and flavors of citrus peel and spice. Recommended serve with food.

1 barrel - 25 cases crafted.
