Lush with delicate floral aromas that carry through to the palate playing beautifully with the wine’s earth tones of wet stone and sage. Creamy, rich, and viscous texture with vibrant acidity.
A variety from Rhône Valley that we find most notably in Condrieu, France, we find here at our estate at Chalk Hill. Small plantings and small production – just delicious! Intensely floral with hints of honeysuckle, jasmine, and super round mouthfeel adds heft and density with peach and apricot, topped with red delicious apple. Hints of lemon curd, quince adds balance to the rich depth of the mid-palate.
Try it with: Seared Atlantic Salmon, Caramelized Onion Soubise, Roasted Brussels Sprouts, Sautéed Garden Kale
“Features of Earth tones of the wine play beautifully with the Earth tones of the dish. Rich fruits stand alongside the salmon which radiates of stone, orchard, and citrus fruits to balance.”
