Trebbiano VQA

Trebbiano VQA Wine Details
Price: $16.09 per bottle

Description: Our Trebbiano is unique to Hester Creek. Aromas of melon, honeysuckle, white peach and a hint of lavender are followed through with mouth filling tropical flavours such as mandarin orange and passion fruit, resulting in a creamy smooth finish. A delightful pairing with Asian cuisine, Camembert and Brie cheeses, egg dishes, lentils, chicken, and fruit-based desserts.

Varietal Definition
Trebbiano in Italy and Ugni Blanc in France. Regardless of the name, this varietal is tremendously prolific; low in alcohol but high in acidity, it is found in almost any basic white Italian wine. It is so ingrained in Italian winemaking that it is actually a sanctioned, ingredient of the blend used for (red) Chianti and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. However, most current Tuscan producers choose not add it to their wines, any longer.
