DOMAINE POCHON CROZES-HERMITAGE ETIENNE POCHON BLANC, 2019
"This blend of organic, northern Rhône Marsanne-Roussanne makes a case for what this pairing can offer. Aromatic notes of nectarine skin and apricot flesh carry though on the rich, silky and creamy textured palate, where some greener herbal notes and well-balanced acidity keep things very food-friendly. An alternative for Albarino fans and a lovely dinner party pairing to carry you from seafood starters to roast white meats."
D'ARENBERG THE HERMIT CRAB MARSANNE - VIOGNIER, 2018
"The name references the Rhône region of Hermitage and crustacean fossils found in limestone bedrock below d'Arenberg's vineyards. Barrel-fermentation and ageing in French and American oak makes for a rich, complex Viognier-Marsanne. Goes well with rich or spicy white meats."
