2019 Treana Blanc
The Hope family has been farming in Paso Robles for more than 30 years. When they arrived in this barely discovered region, they planted apples and grapes. Little did they know that the rolling, oak-studded terrain of Paso Robles would one day become a viticultural terroir of significance and one of the top winegrowing regions for quality red wine within the Central Coast.
Treana Blanc is a stunning full-bodied new world Rhone blend of 47% Viognier, 35% Marsanne, and 18% Roussanne. The color in the glass is medium yellow with aromas of spring flowers, orange blossom, honey, stone fruit, peach, and nuances of tropical fruit. All those aromas remain vibrant on the palate and continue to evolve into flavors of rich pineapple, and apricot with notes of honeysuckle. The finish is long and has some weight with a creamy texture that is brightened with a just the right amount acidity. The Treana Blanc is one of my favorite white wines from our Paso Robles tasting. It is a wine worth seeking out and is crafted to be versatile and enjoyed on its own as an aperitif or with Mediterranean dishes. By Perry Miroballi
