Roughly four-fifths Roussanne and one-fifth Marsanne, this crisp, clean and elegant white wine is underscored with bracing minerality. The fruit suggests gentle flavors of pineapple and papaya, mango and melon, a lovely melding of citrus and tropical. A pleasing wine with modest alcohol and plenty of finesse.
