2013 Franciscan Estate Fountain Court White Wine Napa Valley
Appearance: Pale straw
Aromas: Beautiful orange blossom, jasmine and honeysuckle followed by fruit driven aromas of lychee, ripe nectarine, and guava with a hint of grapefruit. Very rich and exciting with layers of complexity.
Flavors: Full yet lively with passion fruit, hints of lime and mango, followed by notes of Meyer lemon and white nectarine. Fleshy, juicy, and rich.
The predominant grape variety of this blend is Sauvignon blanc – a white Bordeaux variety that provides a crisp and refreshing foundation, providing vibrant notes of lime and minerality. We blend in Muscat Canelli which adds terrific exotic fruit characters, body, floral notes, and a perception of sweetness. This allows our Fountain Court to pair beautifully with a range of culinary possibilities, from spicy barbeque to Thai and other Asian cuisines. It’s a rich, friendly, approachable blend, perfect for picnics and gatherings with friends.
