Napa Valley, Carneros
Not your typical Napa Valley white wine... somewhere between those unctuous Chardonnays and acid-driven Sauvignon Blancs, this classic Italian varietal shines through from a place it was meant to: a stone's throw from the Bay on cool-climate rolling hills of Carneros. Aromatics of citrus blossom, passionfruit, and a hint of honeysuckle. Paired with grilled shrimp or pan-roasted chicken, its bright-but-balanced acidity carries the length of the palate, complementing with flavors of mandarin orange and fuji apple.
