2017 Madonne Blanc Estate

$30.00

Overview

The S.V. Madonne Blanc is our take on the traditional white wines of the southern Rhone Valley. It is a marriage of California soils and climate to a classicly-styled blend of estate grown, Rhone white varieties. In the 2017 vintage the final cépage was 50% Roussanne, 25% Grenache Blanc, 17% Clairette Blanche, and 8% Picpoul Blanc. 


Tasting Notes

The '17 Madonne Blanc displays a bright, floral, fruit-forward nature. Intended for early consumption, the wine's crisp green apple, candied lime, and jasmine character will pair wonderfully with lighter fare including our recipe for Mediterranean Chicken and Avocado Salad.
