"Completing this estate's trio of fine performances, the 2016 Vacqueyras Blanc boasts hints of honey and pineapple on the nose. The blend of 65% Viognier, 30% Grenache Blanc and 5% Clairette is fermented and aged in barrel, providing for ample weight and richness on the palate, but that's complemented by notes of orange zest and brine that prolong the finish. Like most of the whites from this appellation, it should be consumed within the first few years of its life." (WA)

Winery Notes:
straw yellow color, limpid, with golden reflections. On the nose, aromas of toast, white fruits, pear, fishing. Velvety and round on the palate, with lots of fat, aromas of white fruit in syrup, dried apricot and vanilla.
