Menage a Trois White 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Although it’s a tad risqué, Ménage à Trois 2007 Chardonnay has an impeccable, California coastal pedigree: 56% of the grapes are from Monterey County, 37% from Santa Barbara County and 7% from Mendocino County. To enhance its richly fruity flavors, we fermented the wine with a special French yeast (but of course!), induced partial malolacticfermentation, and coupled the creamy result with French and American oak (yet another ménage à trois!), thus delighting Chardonnay hedonists everywhere. Each geographic partner in our Ménage à Trois Chardonnay contributes a distinctive quality: fresh citrus aromas from Monterey; lush tropical fruit flavors from Santa Barbara; and fine structure from Mendocino. We’d like to say it’s a Ménage made in heaven, but to be truthful, it was made in Napa Valley. (Hey, who’s splitting hairs?)

  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!

An excellent value for a solid party wine. Wonderful aroma. This is a tad sweeter than I prefer, but my guests always love it. It really is a refreshing drink on a hot day.

A Zinfandel based blend that is plush, full of sweet fruit, and immensely popular.
