Leonesse Cellars in Temecula Valley
Wine review and rating for a white wine blend from Temecula Valley
2011 Melange de Blanc
Leonesse Cellars is on of my favorite wineries in the Temecula Valley. Some serious wine aficionados may laugh when I say this winery produces some excellent wines. But that’s only because they haven’t had the pleasure of sipping their offerings. As the saying goes, “Don’t knock it ’til you’ve tried it.” You are missing out.
This is a Viognier/Grenache Blanc blend. It’s very aromatic with flavors of white peach, apricot and pear. It’s a wine you can drink with or without food. We tried it at the winery with lobster bisque. Leonesse Cellars has a big tasting room with a separate wine room for special tastings, which need to be purchased in advance. You’ll love this wine come Spring/Summer. $24
