Treana White Rhone Blend Central Coast White 2003
After whole-cluster pressing, the juice was cooled to 35* F to allow solids to settle, then barreled down in 75% neutral French oak. This cool temperature promotes a long, slow temperature. 10% was fermented in stainless steel to retain the high-toned flavor characteristics. Treana white is aged 8 months in barrel and blended three months prior to bottling.
The Hope family has been growing grapes in Paso Robles for thirty years. Today, as Hope Family Wines, we will continue to produce delicious wines that are made in the vineyard.
Honey and apricot aromas, with lemon blossom nuances make for a gorgeous approach to this wine. Full, satiny mouthfeel. Palate of golden delicious and pink grapefruit, dipped in honey. Almost a tinge of botrytis, though this isn't present in the wine. Perfect with Indian food. We had peppered chicken curry, basmati rice, and corn with mustard seeds. Delicious combination.
What can I say? My favorite white, the blend of Marsanne just gives it the flintiness and oiliness I love in white. Mango, tobacco, stone, somehow the mingling of the gasoline and pineapple with the super dry finish, it is a pleasure.
Really enjoyed. Mostly Cab, dark fruit and smooth finish.
