Tablas Creek White Rhone Blend Paso Robles Patelin de Tablas Blanc 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

The Tablas Creek Vineyard Patelin de Tablas Blanc is a blend of four white Rhône varietals: Grenache Blanc, Viognier, Roussanne, and Marsanne. The wine incorporates fruit from eight top Rhone vineyards in Paso Robles, each vineyard selected for its quality. Like many white wines from the Southern Rhône, it is based on the crisp acids and rich mouthfeel of Grenache Blanc, with Viognier added for floral, tropical aromatics, and small additions of Roussanne and Marsanne for structure. The 2012 vintage was a classic Paso Robles vintage, warm and sunny, but with above-average yields thanks to average winter rainfall and the frost-reduced 2011 crop. Despite the warm summer, ripening was slowed due to the healthy crop levels, and harvest at a normal time under ideal conditions, starting in early September and finishing in late October. All varietals for the Patelin de Tablas Blanc were whole cluster pressed, and fermented in stainless steel to emphasize the clean crisp flavors and preserve the aromatics. Only native yeasts were used. After fermentation, the wines were racked and blended, and bottled in July 2013. Best paired with: Seafood cooked with garlic and white wine Green salads with avocado and citrus dressing Lemon chicken Scallops Light-fleshed fish with tropical salsa

Every bit as fresh and as lively in scent as its tender age might suggest, this engaging youngster shows a nice bit of juicy, mildly melony fruit in the mouth with delicate touches of something faintly floral here and there. It may not be all that co... Connoisseurs Guide. A Proprietary Blend wine from California in USA. 2010 Tablas Creek Patelin de Tablas Blanc 750ml

The mouth is broad and rich, peaches and cream, but dry, with a very long finish with a hint of tannin reminiscent of red apple skins, cream, and rocks, nicely saline at the end.
