2020 Willow Blanc
Viognier 75%, Roussanne 25%
The 2020 Willow Blanc opens with floral aromas of honeysuckle, melon, mineral and lime zest. A smooth, seamless palate reveals flavors of golden apple, pear and stone fruit with suggestions of tangerine and herbs. The skin-contact character of the wine becomes most prevalent toward the finish, where crunchy textures linger with lively acidity and hints of Roussanne-derived viscosity.
Willow Blanc is Opolo’s reserve Rhône-style blend of Viognier and Roussanne, crafted with an emphasis on extended skin contact to
create a wine of unique aromatic and textural complexity.
