Lirac Blanc la Fermade Domaine Maby 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

The Lirac ‘La Fermade’ Blanc is a well-balanced, adaptable white wine with good weight and enjoyable aromas of wild flowers and white peaches. The wine exhibits a very pale, clear, slightly green-tinged color. The vineyard for these grapes enjoy warm, dry weather and well-drained limestone and sandstone soils. The wine is fermented and vinified in stainless steel tanks. One often thinks of a typical southern Rhône Lirac as a red with hearty floral scents. However, this white Lirac has all the principal grapes for a great sweet and citrusy wine as it lingers and then fades on the tongue. Truly delicious!

Tasting Notes:

The Picpoul grape is the magic ingredient here that keeps it delightfully fresh. It is zesty and dry with attractive wild flower aromas and subtle orchard fruit flavors. The Lirac ‘La Fermade’ Blanc is made from a blend of Grenache Blanc, Clairette and Picpoul.
