Northern Blend, Rotie Cellars, Walla Walla, Washington USA
'A truly wonderful Rhone styled wine from Washington USA'
Sean Boyd was a geologist before he became a winemaker which has influenced his style, a blend of old world mineralogy and new world fruit for his wines. Sean's goal is a small winery dedicated to creating old world wines from new world grapes. Simple. In simplicity comes elegance and this wine is predominantly Syrah led but also blended with a handful (3%) of Viognier grapes to enhance that lovely herbaceous quality we come to find in those great reds from the Rhone Valley. A wine to impress.
