For years, the Ballentines have had four white varieties planted in their vineyards, and beginning in 2016, they decided to make a unique blend that combines the best qualities of each grape. The result was the Maple Station White Wine, comprised of 33% Malvasia Bianca, 28% Sauvignon Blanc, 23% Chenin Blanc, and 16% Chardonnay.
A crisp, refreshing white blend, this wine is all about sophistication. On the nose, tantalizing notes of just-picked apples, honeysuckle, and nectarines enliven the senses, while the palate offers crisp flavors of lemon zest, rosemary and bright fruit notes. The fruit is sourced from two estate sites, Betty’s Vineyard, which surrounds the winery, and Fig Tree Vineyard which is just four miles down the road. The variety of grapes and winemaking techniques used in fermenting the different varieties enhances the wonderful complexity of this wine. Enjoy!
