Tablas Creek Vineyard Patelin de Tablas 2016 Blanc White Wine, $18.59-$21.99, 90 points, poured a dark glossy gold color.
The nose was soft floral notes with a hint of tangerine.
Medium-bodied with good acidity delivered a citrus/tropical fruit profile that flabbergasts flavor detectors, but let it be said it was balanced and delicious.
Finished long on white pepper, lime, pineapple, ginger, and a well integrated 13% alcohol.
Varietals were 52% Grenache Blanc, 24% Viognier, 19% Roussanne, 9% Marsanne, and 3% Clairette Blanche (Rhone blend).
Paired perfectly with my North Atlantic haddock with green asparagus.
