Tablas Creek Patelin de Tablas Blanc 2016


SKU 437


The 2016 Patelin de Tablas Blanc is intensely Rhone-like on the nose, with notes of nectarines, pineapple, jasmine, and sweet spice. In the mouth, it's electric with passion fruit, peach pit, and lime zest flavors, saline and crushed rock on the mid-palate, with mouth-watering acidity softening into creamy richness on the finish, leaving lingering flavors of sweet spice. Drink now and for the next 2-3 years.

Vinous Green-tinged straw. Vibrant, mineral-accented citrus and orchard fruit aromas are joined by a suave jasmine nuance as the wine stretches out. Lively orange, pear skin and nectarine flavors show very good depth as well as energy, courtesy of a firm spine of zesty minerality. The floral element repeats on a bright, sharply focused finish that leaves a dusty, minerally note behind.
