Broken Earth Winery
2010 Triptych White Blend
California: Paso Robles
We love white blends and were thrilled to find this gem from coastal Central California. Three vibrant white grapes create a fresh and interesting wine that will accompany many holiday meals.
Reminiscent of both Alsace and Rhone whites, Triptych white is fresh on the palette while filling one’s senses with minerality and understated fruit.
Pinot Gris is so-named for its subtle gray tint (“gris” is “gray” in French, “grigio” is “gray” in Italian). Yet the semi-transparent tint of this wine is seen not so much in its core as it is in the rich legs born of three grapes (Viognier, Chardonnay, and Pinot Gris).
Exotic armoas with suble notes of apricot and guava from the Viognier, floral hints from the Pinot Gris, and light oak from the Chardonnay.
The Chardonnay’s soft, rich minerality blends with the earthiness of the two blends. Maintains fruit flavors and delicate acidity, making it perfect partner for seafood and light meat dishes.
A light and elegant finish with long-sustained fruit that gradually yields to a lingering minerality.
