Tasting notes

Falanghina (fah-lawn-GHEE-nah), is a take on an ancient grape from Campania, Italy. There are various theories on the origin of the varietal’s name with the most agreeing that it derived from the Greek word falangos, which refers to the wood poles that support the grape vines. This system of vine training is still used in some parts of Campania and is referred to as “puteolano”. Falanghina is a robust and consistent grape that has the advantage of being extremely eclectic, allowing it to express the characteristics of the terrior in the aroma including those of the soil, the climate and the rich biodiversity found in the Temecula region. Crisp Anjou & Asian pears show on the nose along with Gala apple & white flowers. Nice citrus flavors appear on the palate with lime pith & pink grapefruit. Matches well with scallops, prawns, or clams as well as pastas with white sauce. Cougar Winery was the first winery to get this varietal recognized in the US, so you are drinking history!
