Made with 67% Grenache Blanc, 22% Roussanne and 11% Marsanne, this is our homage to France's Châteauneuf-du-Pape blanc. With an exotic nose of white flowers and spice thanks to Grenache Blanc, and a waxy richness from the Roussanne, this versatile white will please any crowd. It's clean and refreshing enough to drink in Spring and Summer, but certainly robust enough to compliment any autumn meal.

A blend of 67% Grenache Blanc, 22% Roussanne and 11% Marsanne, the 2015 Pape Star Blonde wafts from the glass with a youthful bouquet of crisp melon, orchard fruit, citrus rind and an exotic top note of petrol. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, creamy and textural while remaining juicy and refreshing. Its purity and balance are impressive now, but I would expect this to display even more texture and complexity after a year or two in bottle.

The 2015 Pape Star Blonde is Seth Kunin's Rhône-style blend of Grenache Blanc, Roussanne and Marsanne. Creamy, open-knit and beautifully layered in the glass, the 2015 is absolutely delicious. The Roussanne adds lovely mid-palate oiliness in this impeccably balanced white.

The 2015 Pape Star Blonde checks in as a blend of 67% Grenache Blanc, 22% Roussanne, with 11% Marsanne. It offers enjoyable, straightforward notes of lemon peel and orange blossom to go with a medium-bodied, moderately acidic, nicely textured style on the palate.
