This glass of floral loveliness comes from a blend of 55% Marsanne and 45% Viognier grapes, the tradition Rhone Valley whites of France. Marsanne provides the backbone while Viognier contributes those gorgeous aromatics of dried apricot and honeysuckle.

Marsanne Viognier food pairings: dish with richness, lobster in a butter cream sauce, spiced roast chicken in a cream sauce and roast pork with a nutted sauce, aged gouda cheese such as a beemster.

The 2008 Treana white's color is reminscent of the golden hillsides of the California Central Coast at harvest time. A beautiful bouquet of peaches and lime is bolstered by aromatic notes of honeysuckle. Full in body and rich in flavor, the wine invigorates the palate with dried apricot, pineapple, subtle citrus flavors and notes of honey, which continue through a long finish. The 2008 will age gracefully over the next decade.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
