The Tablas Creek Vineyard Côtes de Tablas Blanc is a blend of four estate-grown white Rhône varietals: Viognier, Marsanne, Grenache Blanc, and Roussanne. The wine, like most wines of the Southern Rhône, is a blend of varietals, featuring the aromatics and fruit of the Viognier, the flavors and clean minerality of the Marsanne and Roussanne, and the crisp acids and rich mouthfeel of the Grenache Blanc.
The 2003 Côtes de Tablas Blanc is Tablas Creek's second national release of its Viognier-based white blend, made in a rich and aromatic style, yet with a clean minerality in the mouth and a very long finish.
Spicy aromas of herbs, stone fruits and minerals are followed in the mouth by apricot flavors, rich texture and a clean, peachy finish.
Food pairings: Scallops, shrimp salads, ceviche,
light fish (halibut, sole) with tropical salsa,
green salads with avocado and citrus dressing
