Domaine de la Terre Rouge Terre Rouge Enigma White 2012


SKU 32345


Aromas suggest almond blossoms, honey, and acacia with hints of tangerine and papaya. Flavors are creamy with peach, apple, and quince impressions competing for your attention. The finish is crisp with classic white Rhône stone (peach) fruit pit flavors that intermingle with the subtle mineral tones from this rocky site. Enjoyable young, the wine also gains great complexity with bottle age. 50% Marsanne, 29% Roussanne & 21% Viognier. Our enigmatic white Rhône blend is the prefect partner for Thanksgiving dinner, with creamy flavors of peach, apple, and quince. The finish is crisp with subtle mineral tones from this rocky site at 3000'.
