our The Pearl
The Pearl Marsanne/Roussanne white wine blend is back due to a wonderful opportunity to seize white Rhone varietals at the Alder Springs Vineyard in the cool and crisp western portion of Mendocino county. The wine is a throwback to earlier Pearl editions from Red Car; perfect for pairing with lighter dinner or enjoying on its own. This wine was made with native yeast fermentation in neutral French oak barrels, creating. The natural alcohol level is 13.5% and the wine features classic white Rhone characteristics of flowers, dried farm herbs, wild sage, and pale straw. This wine has uncommon grace and persistence with a liquid gold appearance that yields a bouquet of fresh pears and wild acacia flowers. On the palate the flavors start as a flowery herbal tea and evolve into a rich honey and almond oil. Over time, it will develop an exotic waxy texture yet maintain an amazing balance between richness and minerality.
