Product Overview

The 2019 Carol Shelton Coquille Blanc is Rhône-style blend of Grenache Blanc, Roussanne, Viognier, and Marsanne. The exotic nose begins with complex aromas of spicy pears and white peaches, almond paste/marzipan, and a touch of honeysuckle perfume. In the mouth, it is crisply dry yet creamy, round and full-bodied, with nice almond paste on crisp-yet-juicy pear fruit. It is the perfect complement to its namesake shellfish, as well as chicken or pork dishes with buttery and creamy sauces.

91 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"Aromas of peach, honey cake and Key lime pie make for a ripe entry to the nose of this blend of white Rhône grapes. There's a viscous feel to the sip, where flavors of roasted orange, lemon tonic and a bit of peach arise." -MK, 4/1/21
