L'Aventure 2008 Roussanne Paso Robles Estate


This isn’t your bargain, everyday white, but it’s definitely your white for special occasions. This elegant wine offers aromas and flavors of white peach and nectarine, beautifully balanced with subtle floral notes, all weaved together by mineral nuances. Winemaker Stephan Asseo describes its bouquet as similar to “an acacia in bloom.” He recommends it with sea bass, halibut, or swordfish (but not shellfish) or white meats like veal, pork, or chicken. At $25 retail it’s affordable for most budgets, but it’s limited and only available at L’Aventure tasting room or by visiting
