  • Also just going to chime in with one for now:

    Chateau La Nerthe makes a wonderful blanc from grenache blanc, roussanne, clairette, and bourboulenc. All of the grapes are vinified separately, with the Roussanne being fermented in oak, 1/3 of which are new. Blending does not occur until final bottling. La Nerthe has a wonderful lifted floral character due to the high proportion of Grenache Blanc and also keeps a strong minerality throughout without losing the richness that is so characteristic of Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc. 

    Pairing: Roasted Halibut in a rich, not spicy curry sauce and naan bread.
