Wine of the week

1997 La Vieille Ferme Cotes du Luberon Grenache Blanc/Roussanne/Ugni-Blanc ($8).

This imaginative white-wine blend uses the high acidity of the ugni blanc to counteract the usual heaviness of Rhone Valley whites. The result is a stylish dry white wine with Loire-like herbal notes to offset the spicy, peachy flavors typical of the Rhone. Its freshness, grip and bite make it an excellent candidate to serve with white-fleshed fish. Drink it over the next six months.
