This good-value white wine makes a tasty aperitif before a dinner party. Most of the grapes were grown in Santa Barbara County vineyards. Stainless steel fermented to preserve the fresh citrus flavors, it offers an array of flavors: juicy pear and nectarine woven with notes of apple, lemon, lime, and spice. Drinkable alone, it’s also a good choice for cheeses like camembert, chevre, and feta, and mildly spiced Asian and Mexican foods. It’s available at the Paso Robles tasting room, $10 retail, or at meridianvineyards.com.
