Our Albion 2017 Cuvée Blanc was made with one hundred percent Fiano grapes from Santa Barbara County. WineShop At Home is excited to be able to offer this new, promising varietal. Behind its beautiful pale color are deeply floral fragrances. A few moments later, the nose reveals fruity characters of grapefruit, lemon and mango. This Fiano was partially-fermented in barrels on its lees to bring creaminess and substance to the body. In the mouth is a multitude of sensations that follow the initial taste; with buttery, creamy, caramel and vanilla flavors. There is also minerality and a crisp mid-palate balancing out this beautiful Cuvée Blanc. This is an excellent representation of a barrel-fermented white wine.
Enjoy it with grilled fish, roasted turkey or chicken or a platter of assorted cheeses. Try it with the featured recipe: Slow Cooker Vegan Portobello ‘Pot Roast’.
