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.

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 Pastoral Blanc

Our latest release of our flagship white Rhone blend. Keeping with tradition, the primary variety is Roussanne (50%) blended with 25% Marsanne, 13% Viognier, 6% Grenache Blanc, 6% Grenache Gris.

The Roussanne, Marsanne, and Viognier, are from the esteemed Saralee's Vineyard in Russian River Valley. The Roussanne and Marsanne are tiny blocks there, and the only plantings in the entire Russian River AVA.

The 2013 might be our best Pastoral Blanc yet, or at least on par with the stunning 2011, though quite different. This year's complex blend is only 12.9% alcohol (difficult to achieve in a balanced Roussanne) and is bright and vibrant, yet aromatic and complex.

This is our annual wine released in time for dungeness crab season on the west coast, and also pairs beautifully with lobster, scallops and similar fare.

2013 Roussanne

Two Shepherds is pleased to offer our first, very small bottling of 100% Roussanne, from the esteemed Saralee's Vineyard. This block is noteworthy both for its foggy cool climate, and being the ONLY planting of Roussanne (6 rows) in the entire Russian River Valley AVA.

This special 25 case lot is a Flock (wine club and allocation) only wine.

Typically all of the Roussanne goes into our flagship Pastoral Blanc blend. 2013 was the first year we kept aside one barrel (25 cases) to showcase the wonderful nature of cool climate, Northern Rhone like Roussanne.

With white peach, marizipan and honeyed notes, this silky textured wine sings with richer foods like crab, creamy pasta, and scallops. Or just gulp it from a Burgundy glass.

2012 Marsanne

Only 1/2 barrel (12 cases) of this special wine was made.

Marsanne is typically used as a blending grape, paired with Roussanne. It’s a prevalent white in the cool Norther Rhone region. I was so impressed with one barrel of the 2012, and its Saint Joseph Blanc like qualities, I simply had to share it, as tempted as I am to keep it for my personal stash. Only 1/2 barrel (12 cases) of this special wine was made.

 

Drinking wonderfully now, it will reward cellaring.
