The 2011 'il Vescovo' white blend is comprised of Savagnin, Verdelho, and Roussanne, continuing Chapel Hill's exploration of fruit flavors, texture, and savory characters. Savagnin, which is native to the Jura region of in Eastern France, offers opulent fruit flavors and rich texture to the blend. Verdelho, a Portuguese variety, is prized for its natural acidity, delicate flavors, fresh herbaceous characters and zesty lime palate. Roussanne is a famed white varietal of France's Rhone Valley and contributes aromatics, richness, and structure to the blend. It promotes a creamy mouthfeel and delicate notes of Meyer lemon on the nose.
Overall, the 2011 'il Vescovo' is fresh, complex and intriguing with aromas of citrus blossom, honeycomb and spice and a rich palate of white nectarine and blood orange flavors.
