The 2018 Sarah’s Vineyard Madonne Blanc is a Rhône blend named for the local Mount Madonna, just to the west of Gilroy. This wine displays a bright, floral, fruit-forward nature. Intended for early consumption, the wine features crisp Golden Delicious apple, Meyer lemon, pear, and honeysuckle character with hints of vanilla and baking spice and will pair wonderfully with lighter fare or a rich, creamy Soubise with thyme rosemary goat cheese.
