Listen up, wine aficionados! We've got some exciting news to share with you. Our winemaker, Mary Roy, has just bottled her first-ever Clairette Blanc, and let us tell you, it's a stunner! This white grape is usually just a blending component in French White and Red blends, but Mary was so impressed by its beauty when she was making the 2022 Capo Creek Playlist blend that she decided to set some aside for a special bottling. And boy, are we glad she did! The wine is a sight to behold, with its brilliant appearance and light lemon notes that dance on your tongue. The creamy mouthfeel and hints of kiwi and D'Anjou pear in the background balance out the acidity perfectly. And here's the best part - this wine is so versatile that it can be paired with both sweet and savory dishes. And at just 12.5% ABV, it's the perfect wine to sip on those scorching summer days. But hurry - we only have limited quantities available!

Food Pairing Notes
Mary recommends pairing it with her house-made lemon curd blueberry tartlets (with extra whipped cream, of course!).
