From the winery:
“Co-fermentation & blending of 2 separate lots/vineyards has created an amazing dry full-bodied wine of elegance and power. 55% Marsanne/34% Roussanne/11% Grenache Blanc all “band” together to reveal exotic & refreshing perfumed aromas of spiced herbal tea, spring blossoms, Asian pears, greengages, and honeysuckle! All these aromatics follow thru to the palate creating an incredible rich mouth-feel that continuously pleases with or without food!
Today’s wine is the second we’ve sampled from Parejas Cellars in Yakima Valley, Washington and the first white. And just the like the excellent red blend we sampled previously (Parejas Cellars Tres Rojas de Mesa 2008 – Fabulously Tasty) this one hits it out of the park.
The 2012 Wysling Band of Sisters begins with a very pleasant aroma of tropical fruit, minerals, honeysuckle and some intriguing herbal notes. Tasting reveals a beautiful, dry, fruit and mineral filled palate. Tropical fruit, pears, spicy minerals, a wonderful texture and great balance make for an extremely satisfying wine. All these flavors flow into the long finish. A beautiful Rhone blend!
