The Gap is our signature white blend, consisting of the three white Rhone grapes grown on a small, limestone-rich part of the property. Together, they comprise less than 2 acres of our total vineyard. Grenache Blanc, with its stone fruit and apricot blossom aromas, dominates the blend. Picpoul Blanc adds brightness and acidity, while Roussanne offers complexity and floral character. A bit of new French oak adds richness and a baking spice notes, making this wine extremely food friendly.
The Gap was named for the Templeton Gap, the corridor along the 46 West that pulls in cool air from the coast and provides Paso Robles the ability to retain acidity in the grapes and create beautifully balanced wines.
