2018 Tablas Creek Esprit Blanc de Tablas, USA, California, Paso Robles, Adelaida District, Wine Review
This is a blend of 66% Roussanne, 21% Grenache Blanc, 8% Picpoul Blanc, 3% Picardin and 2% Clairette Blanche. Light golden in color, clear and bright. The nose has pears, peaches, some minerality and spice. Full bodied. On the palate, pears and peaches with good acidity. A roundness of the wine makes it very accessible. Long finish. Still youthful, there is plenty of depth and complexity. White Rhone varietals are notoriously difficult to guess an ageing curve, but this should easily have a decade left. It worked quite well with a Caprese Salad and also Guacamole.
