2015 Franciscan Estate Equilibrium

July 15, 2016 - Norman Bentley
#28-16-PIE

Recently we were invited to our cousin's house for a sumptuous meal of home-made Shrimp Jambalaya, which was made even better with a bottle of Franciscan Equilibrium. The combination of the spicy shrimp and andouille sausage, with the fruity, off-dry wine was wonderful!

The Franciscan Estate Equilibrium is a white blend, which is two thirds Sauvignon Blanc, with the remainder being split between Chardonnay and Muscat Canelli. The result is a fragrant and fruity, off-dry white which is perfect for spicy dishes. The nose is very aromatic with the pronounced scent of green apples backed with honeysuckle. The big fruit flavor displays apple, pear and a little peach, backed by a slight citrus breeze. The finish is clean and refreshing, and begs for another sip. The alcohol content is 12.5%, and Norm's score is 89.

As I said, this wine is a perfect match for spicy food such as Jambalaya or barbecue, and would pair well with a number of Asian dishes like Shrimp Mango Tango, dishes featuring curry, or Thai Basil Chicken. It is also a great "back porch sipper"!

price : $19 - $22

score: 89
