This beautiful Rhône-style white wine blend of Marsanne, Viognier, and Vermentino is a superb standout! The captivating bouquet opens with fresh cut lilacs, guava, bright lemongrass, and pomelo while hints of gardenia and chamomile interlace seamlessly. The palate is concentrated with lush stone fruits and balanced with fresh pops of vivacious acidity. Flavors of white peach coat the palate and are complemented by a vein of fresh lemon curd and tropical lychee. The palate is delightfully opulent but held upright by a vibrant swathe of acidity that extends through the sumptuous finish. Drink now through 2024.
