2018 Treana Blanc
Hope Family Wines
California, Central Coast
Treana is the sum of elements that influence our wines, the land that our family farms, the warm California sun that nurtures and the cooling ocean breeze that balances. These elements combine to create the perfect growing conditions for our grapes.
Treana Blanc is a stunning full bodied new world Rhône blend with aromas of orange blossom, honey, peach nectar and a hint of tropical passion fruit. All of those aromas continue on the palate and evolve into rich roasted pineapple, dried apricot with notes of honeysuckle and elderflower. The finish is long and weighted with a creamy texture that is brightened with a touch of acid. This wine is crafted to be enjoyed with food and is very versatile.
The grapes for the 2018 Treana Blanc were whole-cluster pressed and the juice was chilled to 35ºC to allow the solids to settle. Once settled, the juice was transferred to French oak barrels for fermentation, of which h50% were twice used, 25% were once used and 25% were neutral. The wine aged on its lees for nearly sixteen months before being blended in February of 2020. The blend aged together for another three months in 100% new French Oak until bottling in June of 2020.
We suggest a range of dishes from spicy curry to pan roasted salmon or poached lobster
