Robert Foley has been around the block a few times, so to speak. With wines like Hourglass, Robert Foley, Paloma, Pride, Switchback Ridge, etc., one can only expect the best of the best from this winemaker and winery. Known for making big, bold red wines, I was happily surprised when he introduced his FIRST WHITE RHONE BLEND! Only 400 cases of this inaugural wine were produced, and I anticipate it to go very fast!

This is a classic Rhone-variety blend combining 50% Grenache Blanc, 40% Roussanne, and 10% Marsanne, vinified without the use of oak. The aromas suggest a bouquet of honeysuckle, jasmine and citrus blossoms. The mid-palate feels like a flood of honeyed white fig carried by natural grape acidity. The purity of fruit carries long in the lingering finish. Best experienced slightly chilled. It is vinified in stainless steel, settled, clarified and bottled young and crisp. The wine is then bottled aged for 18 months before release. It never saw an oak barrel and its acidity has been preserved by preventing malolactic fermentation. The resulting wine is crisp and delicate and focused entirely on the character of the fruit. (400 cases produced.)
