Uvica Ardechois Cotes du Rhone Blanc
This is surprisingly light on its feet and refreshing. This wine benefits from a cooler terroir, being grown high up on the slopes of the mountains west of Montelimar and the Rhône river. Hand-harvested, it's fermented in cement and stainless, and presents bright pear, white flowers, and wet stone notes. Interestingly, the nose smells rich, but the palate is bright and balanced.
