Elyse Winery 2014 L’Ingenue Naggiar Vineyard White Rhone Blend
Sierra Foothills California
4.0 vivino Rating
L’Ingénue (naïve girl) is composed of four white grape varietals that are well known to the Rhone Valley of France and are very well received by the terroir of the Sierra Foothills. The 2011 vintage blend includes 52% Roussanne, 32% Marsanne, 11% Viognier and 5% Grenache Blanc. This wine is a golden straw color with delicate aromas of nectarines, white peaches and wildflower honey. Fresh summer fruit flavors of stone fruits, pear and fig show through this wine’s creamy mouthfeel followed by crisp acidity. L’Ingénue has great palate weight, wonderful texture, bright fruit and a long, supple, lasting finish. This is a white even a diehard red wine drinker will enjoy! Serve with shellfish, rich seafood dishes, and fowl. This wine’s substantial weight and bright fruit also make a nice pairing with spicy Asian cuisine. This wine will age beautifully for 5 – 8 years. In fact, we just opened a 2004 that was stunning.
