Winemaker Beatrice Cointreau Notes
As our property blossoms in Malibu, we also offer a range of super premium quality wines from next door AVA in California. The nose is irresistible, due to aromatic Viognier. Characteristic white flowers (orange blossom and acacia) heady notes blooming into honeysuckle, ripe peaches and musk, wraps you in a cloud of real dense Muscat nose. On the palate the wine is surprisingly dry, fragrant, with fruity notes of apricot and mango. The finale is fresh, lemony and long, due to the natural ability of the Chardonnay to support the wine through aging. The mouth feels rich, full but light, and long. Did you know: In the mid-1980’s there was only 32 ha of Viognier in the whole world (8o acres, almost all located in Condrieu France) so this v ...more... arietal almost disappeared. We were very blessed to see our Viognier blossoming in Malibu due to the misty mornings, cool foggy nights and constant cooling ocean breeze. We will be planting the lot just acquired next door this upcoming fall mainly with Viognier as well. Food and wine pairing: Blanc & Blanc is a fish lover (grilled salmon, sushi, ceviche or tuna tartar). It will also pair well with seafood, Asian cuisine (especially Thai), white meat, vegetarian dishes (and risotto) or creamy desserts.
