2017 Farmhouse White
The 2017 Farmhouse White from Cline Cellars mixes it up and stands out from most white blends because of the uniqueness of the six varietals that are the backbone of this refreshing beauty. Medium golden with loads of honeycomb and warm tropic fruits on the nose. Hints of wildflower appear as this wine warms to (my) proper drinking temperature (which is room temperature). Blended with Palomino (41%), Muscat Canelli (25%), Roussanne (22%), Marsanne (6%), Viognier (5%) and Riesling (1%), this wine provides a crisp and slightly sweet flavor profile of tropical fruits, pear preserves, key lime pie and cantaloupe. The finish is solid and this wine should be taken seriously, because it is one that will bring you back over and over again. I would recommend this with raw veggies and dill dip or bruschetta that is high in garlic content.
