Estate grown since 2004. The nose shows bold white peach and pear fragrances with lovely tropical fruit nuances. On the palate you'll notice citrus blossoms and lemons grass, with a touch of minerality on the finish. Pair with swordfish and beurre blanc sauce or cauliflower and goat cheese souffle.
Grown in the old vineyard just 300 yards east of our estate by our good friend George Besson Jr. Dark plum and cherry aroma on the nose, with rose and violet potpourri, honey bbq sauce and cracked black pepper. The palate compliments the fruit aromas with a touch of bacon fat and dried herbaceous notes. Pair with a roasted lamb and mole sauce, or grilled eggplant with feta.
Madonne Blanc is our effort to emulate the traditional wines of the southern Rhone Valley. It is a marriage of California soils and climate to a classically styled blend of estate grown, Rhone white varietals. The final blend is 61% Roussanne, 18% Grenache Blanc, 15% Clairette Blanche, and 6% Picpoul Blanc. This wine reflects its southern Rhone heritage: sunny, bright, floral, friuty and complex. Inteded for early consumption, the wine's, peach, lemon creme, and vanilla aromas and flavors will prove a refreshing pairing with summertime, Mediterranean fare.
