When I received the package with the Franciscan Equilibrium White Blend from Franciscan Estate Winery, it was perfect timing. It arrived just in time allowing us the opportunity to enjoy this great white wine following an incredibly hot day.
The receipt of This Franciscan Equilibrium White Blend was such a pleasure. Regardless of their generosity, any thoughts and opinions regarding this wonderful wine are truly my own.
Franciscan Equilibrium White Blend
Franciscan Estate Winery is one of the early pioneers of the Napa wine region. The Franciscan Estate Winery, established in 1973, began producing wines in 1975. They pride themselves in only using the highest quality grapes worthy of the Franciscan Estate label. They produce their wines in small lots, which will allow the wine’s unmistakable characteristics to shine through. From their inception, they have endeavored to produce perfection in every bottle and to create the best wine possible. They have succeeded with this in their Franciscan Equilibrium White Blend.
They are located in Oakville, between St. Helen and Rutherford CA. The Franciscan Estate Winery has a beautiful facility located in a very charming part of Napa Valley. They provide wine tastings, guided tours and seminars on a daily basis that are all well worth the time. If you’re looking for something a bit special, the winery offers you the opportunity to schedule a private tasting, a fun thing to do.
This is what the winemaker has to say about their Franciscan Equilibrium White Blend:
“Our Equilibrium white blend is a rich, fun, and unique wine that’s easy to enjoy. The name Equilibrium means “to come together in a state of harmonious balance.” With this in mind, our winemakers crafted a unique expression of artisanal blending. Crisp mouthfeel showing bright floral notes along with refreshing pear and white peach flavors, Equilibrium is an ensemble of Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, and Muscat. The perception of sweetness enables it to pair beautifully with a range of foods, from spicy barbeque to Thai and other Asian cuisines.”
You can find Franciscan Equilibrium White Blend on their website (use their handy retail locator to find it your area) and wine.com.
We very much enjoyed this wine and would definitely seek it out again. I can see how it would pair well with my Easy Dry Rub Ribs. In fact, I may just have to make my ribs and have some friends over for a gathering and to share this Franciscan Equilibrium White Blend at that event. I know they would love it.
