50% Roussanne 17% Viognier 17% Sauvignon Blanc 8% Grenache Blanc 8% Riesling
The 2016 Hapa Blanc is like no other that I have ever made. The Roussanne, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling and Grenache Blanc come from La Presa vineyard and the Viognier from Tierra Alta’s limestone laden slopes. The wine is a combination of neutral barrel and stainless steel depending on the varietal. The wine was aged for 11 months on lees prior to bottling in August.
Aromas of pear, golden apple and ripe pineapple along with orange blossom, spice and mineral. Flavors of pineapple, pear and honeydew melon give way to a lush core of lemon curd, prickly pear and mineral, finishing lush and crisp with a hint of white tannin. This wine will age amazingly should you put some aside, or drink now with spicy Asian and lighter fishes.
