Wine Review: This light yellow colored Rhone grape blend from Robert Foley opens with fragrant banana and pear like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, slightly acidic and juicy. The flavor profile is a mineral infused tart pear with notes of tangerine. I also detected hints cantaloupe and pineapple. The finish is dry and its flavors and acidity linger and last for a while. This wine would pair well swordfish skewers with roasted onions and peppers. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: This is a classic Rhone-variety blend combining 50% Grenache Blanc, 40% Roussanne, and 10% Marsanne, vinified without the use of oak. The aromas suggest a bouquet of honeysuckle, jasmine and citrus blossoms. The mid-palate feels like a flood of honeyed white fig carried by natural grape acidity. The purity of fruit carries long in the lingering finish. Best experienced slightly chilled. It is vinified in stainless steel, settled, clarified and bottled young and crisp. The wine is then bottled aged for 18 months before release. It never saw an oak barrel and its acidity has been preserved by preventing malolactic fermentation. The resulting wine is crisp and delicate and focused entirely on the character of the fruit.
