(From 2011 Vintage) The Treana White is a deep gold color and exhibits lush aromatics. Bold aromas of honeysuckle, pineapple, and orange oil prepare the palate for a wine of balance and complexity. The smooth entry leads to rich flavors of blood orange, peaches and apricots, along with subtle hints of dried herbs and finely ground white pepper.
The Treana White also relies on the perfect combination of sun, soil and ocean, but this time from the cooler climate of Monterey County. The grapes for this Marsanne/Viognier blend come from the acclaimed Mer Soleil vineyard, and the resulting wine exhibits the rich tropical fruit and complex structure you would expect from a premium Rhone. 1997 was the first vintage of this wine and marked an impressive debut for Winemaker Austin Hope.
