The Ballentine 2017 ‘Maple Station’ White Wine combines 35% Malvasia Bianca, 30% Chardonnay, 29% Sauvignon Blanc, and 6% Chenin Blanc. Each varietal was fermented separately and differently in order to capture the best qualities that would complement the blend as a whole. Each year, the exact blend changes, but the four varietals remain the same, representing the collection of white wine grapes grown on Ballentine’s estate vineyards.
The aromas are sweet, fresh, and invigorating, with floral notes of honeysuckle, and hints of apricot jam and vanilla. The palate is beautifully balanced with refreshing notes of stone fruit, herbs and a lovely perfume that marries it all together. Try pairing this wine with grilled chicken or seafood. Aged in a combination of oak and stainless steel tanks. Enjoy!
