PROFILE-Beautifully lifted fruit, harvested from a rocky soil profile, leaving the usually fatter Rhone varietals of Grenache Blanc and Roussanne lean and bright. The choice to leave this wine un-oaked ensures that the drinker gets freshness, citrus and a hint of brine thanks to the Mediterranean influence here. There is a bit of spice akin to white pepper and lemon zest. Drinks great with oysters as the label suggests, but could be paired with everything from sushi and spicy Thai to grilled white meats.

Wine Maker-Michele D’Aprix
Recently, at a lunch table with friends, we tasted this wine — it was bright, fun, and completely refreshing. The wine totally complimented the food and good, honest farmers grew the grapes. The Grenache Blanc and Roussanne in this blend hail
from the tippy-toes of the Southwestern Rhône Valley where the attitude and exposition are truly Mediterranean. The juice is fermented in steel with natural yeast and the wine is left unoaked. I love this wine.
They live longer down here for a reason. Many people tell the story of falling in love with a wine they had on vacation, and I know exactly what they’re talking about... it’s the moment you taste it: with great friends, alongside great food and no clock
Caz translates to “crazy in a good way,” a sentiment I have come to embrace as I branch out from Bordeaux, bringing you wines from new terroirs.-Michele
