Treana 2010 White Blend, Central Coast
Item Number: 60 20 149 11
Treana White is an equal blend of Viognier and Marsanne. These two varieties, indigenous to the Rhône Valley in France, prosper in California’s Central Coast. The Hope family helped pioneer the now-thriving category of California white Rhône blends over the past 15 vintages. The majority of the fruit in this blend is from the Santa Lucia Highlands, which benefits from the cooling breezes coming off of Monterey Bay. 50% Marsanne and 50% Viognier. All but 5% of the wine is barrel fermented in French oak and then aged on the lies for 9 months. The 2011 Treana White is pale golden straw in color and exhibits vibrant aromatics. A bold bouquet of stone fruit and white flowers are followed by hints of honey and nutty notes of pecan and almond. On the palate, rich flavors of melon, peach and honey follow with an oily mid-palate, and a bright finish. Due in part to the ageability of Marsanne, Treana White has a trusted history of aging 10+ years. A bold and distinctive white wine, On Sale!
