2017 Cotes-du-Robles Blanc
Our delicious white Rhône blend has flavors and aromas of fresh pears
and apricots with hints of candied ginger followed by a dry, flinty finish.
Rainfall was ample during the winter months and bud break took place at the normal time in early spring. A moderately hot summer led to excellent canopy growth and uniform cluster development. A major heatwave across California in the last week of August led to a fast and furious harvest. All of our white varietals were harvested within the first week of September a record for Eberle Winery. The red varietals were right behind them with the Zinfandel being the first to come through the cellar doors. Our hard-working winemaking team spent a good amount of time at the sorting table this year, making sure each cluster was carefully inspected and sorted, eliminating raisins and damaged fruit to insure a quality vintage
The crisp and refreshing style of the Côtes-du-Rôbles Blanc lends itself to a wide variety of fare from a savory herb cheesecake with roasted vegetables to a baked lemon butter Tilapia or a creamy Parmesan risotto.
