2014 Troon Vineyard Longue Carabine

2014 Troon Vineyard Longue Carabine

Applegate Valley
Southern Oregon

143 cases produced
Cork enclosure

The back label describes this white wine as “a mysterious blend of grapes from the south of France” but a little detective work on the Troon Vineyard website reveals the blend as 38.5% Vermentino, 33% Viognier, 27% Marsanne and 1.5% Roussanne. After spending 7 months in neutral French oak barrels, the Longue Carabine is packed full of flavor and texture. Let us repeat that in case you missed it the first time, if you like texture in your wine, this bottle is for you!

With mouth watering aromas of Meyer lemons and zest, star fruit and apricots, the Troon Longue Carabine was creamy and textured when we sipped it. It tasted of tangy lemons, apricots, honeydew melon and green mango. Just a hint of residual sugar, this wine is a real crowd-pleaser, perfect for a concert in the park (as we drank it) or a special dinner.

The Winerabblers think that Chardonnay lovers will go gaga over this wine so if you’re in this camp, place your order today! And we would suggest pairing it with fried chicken, aged cheddar mac and cheese or garlic-lemon seared scallops.

SRP $29.

    You had me at creamy texture but with citrusy nose and flavors, and doubled down on my interest when you mentioned pairing it with fried chicken or aged mac and cheese!

      Lol Pech! This wine has a great balance of both texture and acidity that I think you would really love. Cheers, Michele

    Oooh Meyer lemons and zest – yum! I’ve never heard of this wine before but I’m so impressed by the wines coming out of Applegate Valley. Thanks for the suggestion!

      Hey Marlynn- they have a tasting room in Carlton so you don’t even have to go all the way down to the Applegate to visit them. Check it out!

    Any wine sounds great right now but this one especially! I’m counting down the weeks until this babe joins us and I can once again have a glass of wine in my hand.

      Lindsay- early congrats on the new bundle of joy! I’ve heard the last few weeks are the toughest so you deserve some wine once the baby comes! Good luck, Michele
