Wine Review: Brilliant gold in color, this fragrant white blend opens with enticing aromas of brioche, white lily and lemon verbena. On the palate, grapefruit and other citrus flavors take an early lead followed by tropical fruit flavors, including pineapple; apricot and peach show up in traces. Tangy citrus flavors return at the exit in the likeness of lemon-lime soda. The acidity is well-managed, and the finish will last long enough to pour another glass. This good value wine would pair well with raw shellfish selections or halibut crudo. - Jeoff

Winemaker Notes: Sauvignon Blanc brings acidity to the blend while Viognier provides fleshiness and attractive notes of stone fruit and flowers. Blending the two varieties results in an aromatic and fresh-tasting wine with aromas and flavors of peach blossoms, fennel, apricots, grapefruit, lychee fruit, and mangos. Little James’ Basket Press Blanc can work well with a wide range of foods. Try this wine with garden salads, ceviche or grilled fish.
