Description

Inspiration is a white Rhône style blend with tropical aromas of white flowers, jasmine and honeydew melon intertwined with hints of vanilla, nectarine and orange marmalade. Tangerine, vanilla and almond flavors flood the palate followed by hints of honeysuckle and lemon cream.

The Marsanne base contributes to the richness and acidity of this food friendly blend, while Roussanne intensifies the aromatic profile and Viognier adds weight and a hint of stone fruit flavors.

Pair with shellfish, chicken, pork and vegetable dishes prepared with savory butter or creamsauces.

Wine Critic Reviews
"The standout among the whites is the 2020 Inspiration White, a blend of 50% Marsanne, 25% Roussanne, and 25% Viognier. It reminds me of a terrific Saint-Joseph white with its honeyed stone fruits, white flowers, and chalky minerality. Rich, medium-bodied, and beautifully textured, it's a richer, balanced, impressive white that will shine on the dinner table." ~ Jeb Dunnuck "The 2020 Inspiration is a white Rhône blend. Hints of apricot, ginger, citrus and white flowers give this crisp, dry white plenty of character. Aging in large format oak helps retain a good bit of freshness to balance things out." ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous
