About This Wine
A peach-like flavor shows up occasionally in certain varieties of white wine.
But Totally Random Peach takes no chances. It’s a blend of various white varieties — some with peach flavors, some without — that is blended and infused with natural peach flavors. You may also notice hints of citrus and tangerine, but this wine is all about... peach.
In case you didn’t know, the botanical name Prunus persica refers to Persia; the Persians introduced the fruit to the Western world, according to Wikipedia. But peaches actually originated in China, where they’ve been cultivated since the early days of Chinese culture, circa 2000 B.C. In the 10th century B.C., they were a favored fruit of kings and emperors.
Nothing can beat biting into a fresh, perfectly-ripened, juicy peach, but Totally Random Peach comes close. For a delicious treat, try it with a peach chicken salad. Or, for a totally decadent experience, serve Totally Random Peach with a peach cobbler.

Papaya Pear Mango Salsa Normally, we provide Vinesse members with complete recipes for wine-friendly fare. This month, however, we thought we'd share a pair of "topping" recipes that will bring any number of main course selections to life. We begin with this salsa recipe from our friends at Sonoma County's Kenwood Vineyards. Try it over sea bass, halibut or salmon for a palate-awakening change of pace, and enjoy it with Sauvignon Blanc, White Bordeaux or almost any white blend. Get The Recipe
