TERMINIM is a collaboration between French winemaker (Northern Rhône Valley) François Villard and California winemaker Donald Patz. The wines are produced from traditional Rhône Valley grape varieties carefully grown at the famous Alder Springs Vineyard in the mountains of Mendocino County, California. The resulting wines are a unique melding of the two winemakers’ tastes in wine and an example of how working together sometimes magic can happen.
The assemblage of this wine is – 52% Marsanne, 24% Roussanne, 12% Picpoul Blanc and 12% Viognier. The aromas of wildflowers and summer stone fruits create a luscious framework for crisp acidity to deliver refreshing white wine unlike any other. Mr. Patz was thinking of a wine to go with his wife’s cuisine from Korea.
