Winemaker's Notes

Treana White is a Rhône-style blend of Marsanne and Viognier, two varieties that thrive in California's Central Coast growing region. Fruit for the blend is sourced from the renowned Mer Soleil Vineyard in Monterey County. Cool maritime winds off the bay keep the vineyards temperate all summer long. This cooler climate imposes a long, gentle growing season, resulting in wines of excellent balance and complexity.

This wine displays the elegant varietal characteristics of Viognier and Marsanne. This alluring blend offers floral aromas of citrus, honeysuckle and jasmine followed by ripe flavors of stone fruit with rich honey overtones. High-toned citrus notes and a solid minerality lend excellent balance. The mouthfeel is lush and full with a broad mid-palate while bright acidity cleans the palate and lends ease and versatility to food-pairing. The 2003 Treana White will age beautifully over the next decade.

"Treana has established this as one of the top Rhône whites in California. The '03 is an amazing wine. It displays the fresh, keen acidity of the vineyard, which grows no reds, and detonates on the palate with tremendous apricot, papaya, mango, pineapple, tangerine, peach and mineral flavors. It's basically dry, although there's a touch of botrytis honey."
