Cairdeas Winery, 2011 - Nellie Mae

60% Viognier - 40% Roussanne When we started the winery my 85 yr old grandmother kept asking if she could come see “what all these grapes were about”. She visited the winery and actually helped us crush the Roussanne that went into this wine... so we had to name it after her. Bright citrus notes make this white rhone style blend the perfect summer sipper. Beautiful floral and tropical fruit aromas. This wine pairs perfectly with a warm summer day, chicken dishes, or shellfish. Nellie Mae is a tribute to our families. Nellie is our 85 year old grandmother who is a huge inspiration in our lives and Mae is a family name that crosses both of our backgrounds representing some of the strongest and most passionate woman we know. *DOUBLE GOLD* winner at Seattle Wine Awards
