Every once in a while you discover a wine that shines so much, it takes your mind away from the everyday mundane tasks and magically transports you to a tropical oasis. Ambiance may just be that special wine! Our beautiful blend of Roussanne, Grenache Blanc, and Viognier, is inspired by the sunny wines of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Each varietal brings unique characteristics to the wine creating a special atmosphere of pure enjoyment.
The Roussanne brings honeydew, kiwi and lemon custard elements, while the Grenache Blanc adds great character with a spicy, peppery core and silky texture. Adding the Viognier gives the wine beautiful honeysuckle aromas coupled with nuances of white peach, pear and tropical fruit. Our 2009 Ambiance is a full bodied wine with plenty of personality and mouth coating goodness!
Having a special celebration for just the two of you? Pair this wine with grilled lobster for the perfect "Ambiance." It is equally enjoyable for any night of the week with chicken enchiladas, fettuccine alfredo or a tropical chicken salad.
