Alexandria Nicole Shepherds Mark 2020
Alexandria Nicole Cellars was the first to produce this classic Estate Rhone blend of Roussanne, Marsanne, and Viognier in Washington State, and it has been our signature white wine since 2004. This year's Roussanne-based blend displays pleasing floral notes, backed by stone fruit, and tropical aromas of grapefruit and mango on the nose. A weighty palate filled with tangerine, honeysuckle and Meyer lemon gives way to a bright backbone of acidity, balancing out the wine and providing a sustained and elegant finish. The intensity of this wine makes it a perfect candidate for rich fish or poultry dishes. Try with sautéed chicken with celery-root puree. Served chilled.
