n. 1. A rare, expensive possession that is a financial burden to maintain. 2. An uncommon whitish or light-gray form of the Asia elephant, often regarded with special venerations. 3. A unique California white wine made from a blend of 58% Chenin Blanc, 32% Viognier and 10% Roussanne, which are barrel fermented in French Oak and aged Sur Lies for 9 months. Its cool climate pedigree stretches from Clarksburg, through San Benito to Santa Barbara County.
This crisp white wine has a crystal pale yellow hue. The aromas are brilliant and intense with tropical and citrus zest with linalool and ripe pineapple notes....
The appearance of this sparkling Chenin Blanc illustrates a vibrant, small bubble bead and a fine mousse over a crystal clear, pale yellow color. Aromatically, the wine is tropical with pineapple, mango and guava with a hint of marzipan and a Key lime backdrop. The palate expresses ripe peach, passion fruit and lemon verbena and finishes dry with pure Chenin citrus fruit and lively acidity.
This wine is rich and layered, but relies on the natural acidity from the acidity of the Santa Lucia Highlands fruit.
