Rand Sealey Reviews 2011 Ambiance
" ... a rich nose of pear, peach & apricot, with scents of orange blossom, honeysuckle & jasmine...a creamy texture that is counterpointed by pineapple & grapefruit juices... Excellent value. "

2011 Forgeron Cellars "Ambiance" White, Columbia Valley ($25)
"This blend of 30% Roussanne, 30% Grenache Blanc, 20% Marsanne and 20% Viognier shows a brilliant gold color and a rich nose of pear, peach and apricot, with scents of orange blossom, honeysuckle and jasmine. The white fruit compote flavors are bright and vivid, with a creamy texture that is counterpointed by pineapple and grapefruit juices. The back picks up notes of grape skin, pear peel, peach stone and stony minerals, followed by a lingering full bodied dry finish. Excellent value. 18.5/20 points."
