Menage a Trois White 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

We don't look askance at those of you who are happy with just one variety in your wines. And we would never snicker or make snide remarks about those of you who are satisfied with two varieties in your blend. We just feel that three is better than one or two. Ménage à Trois examines what happens when you put three attractive, single, young grapes in one exquisite bottle. It's fun; it's exciting; it's legal in most states.WINEMAKER NOTESThe 2006 Ménage à Trois white is a trip to the islands without the worry of sunburn or bugs. It's undeniably fruity and unabashedly easy. It's meant to be quaffed, not analyzed. Citrus and tropical fruit flavors with crisp acidity. Dare we say it's refreshing? With food or without, alone or with two companions, this is one of the most exhilarating experiences imaginable.VINEYARD & WINEMAKING The 2006 Ménage à Trois white marries Chardonnay, Muscat and Chenin Blanc. Each variety is individually harvested, gently crushed and cold-fermented in small stainless steel tanks to preserve freshness and character and retain the juicy fruit aromas. The Chardonnay is rich and firm. The Muscat is wild and exotic. The Chenin is soft and supportive. Together they make the perfect threesome.WINE INFORMATIONVarieties: Chardonnay, Muscat, Chenin BlancAlcohol: 13.1% T.A.: .61g/100mlpH: 3.31Release Date: June 2007

  In 1981, two wine-loving psychiatrists established a boutique winery they name Folie a Deux, a French term meaning “A passion shared by two.”  Thirty years later, our shared passion is creating world-class varietal wines from the leading appellations of Sonoma County. Made to be enjoyed upon release, our Russian River Valley Chardonnay, Sonoma County Merlot, Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, and Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel embody the perfect fusion of grape variety and growing region.  Showcasing vibrant aromas and flavors, they offer a striking balance of intensity and accessibility.  At Folie a Deux, we think it’s ok to be a little crazy about wine.  After all, we are!

I bought this after trying the Ménage à Trois Red and being very pleased. I cannot say this blend was as good, but it was well suited to appeal to both drier and sweeter drinkers (Chardonnay/Muscat respectively). Not a lot of body, and a short finish. Good value, and an overall decent table wine however.

My wife loves this stuff. I'm pretty fond of it too. You can pour a big glass of it for almost anyone & they'll think its way more than a decent grocery store bottle. Great with baked salmon & grilled veggies. Also with pizza.
