2012 Triple Layer White
The three white varietals that comprise our Triple Layer White – Viognier, Roussanne and Marsanne – are traditionally associated with the northern Rhône region of France. Much of the Monterey appellation has a similar climate to the Rhône, with cold winters, foggy spring days, and the howling wind, known in France as le mistral. Although each tier is quite delicious and wonderful all on its own, blending the lively trio takes it to a different level. Featuring the striking aromatics and honeysuckle of Viognier, the melon and clean minerality of Roussanne, and the tangerine fruit and almond character of Marsanne, this flavorful blend is a perfect partner to a wide variety of cuisines. It is a sensual, seductive wine and pairs wonderfully with fresh oysters, crab cakes, shellfish in cream sauce, and succulent roasted poultry.
