WINEMAKING

Fruit for our 2018 “GSM” blend come from six different vineyards across Santa Barbara County, including the Sunstone Estate vineyard. The wine varietals were aged separately in 20% new and 80% neutral American oak and blended and bottled to 821 cases in March 2020.

 

FOOD PAIRING

Our Rapsodie blend is always a fun, everyday drinking wine that pairs perfectly with anything you’re having…or any day of the week. Try this with braised lamb shank, a Moroccan tagine, or other spicy stews. Works really well with barbecued chicken and grilled sausage.

 

CELLARING     

The 2018 Rapsodie can be enjoyed now and for up to an additional 4-6 years if stored in proper conditions.
