Available for:
Slight straw and golden hues with a viscosity that clings to the glass as it is swirled. Apricots, white floral, sweet honey, hints of brioche toast, sweet pea flowers and pineapple. Full, round and pleasing with ample acidity to balance the richness that will continue to evolve with time in bottle. Flavors of apple, wet stone and a touch of peach nectar engage with a lovely long persistent finish that lingers. The taste and aromatics of Rhône white blends are ideal for our Santa Barbara lifestyle. They pair well with the alfresco meals we eat and the cuisine typical of this area: grilled seafood, papaya salsa, meadow picnics, the beach, seafood skewers and general fun. These wines are great while young and develop to an entirely other experience with bottle age. Try M5 White with grilled foods, especially fish and sausage, tapenades, ratatouille, and fish stew. For cheese, we suggest light blues & triple creams.

This is a compelling and delicious blend of 54% Grenache Blanc, 21% Viognier, 14% Marsanne, 8% Roussanne and 3% Vermentino from Doug Margerum's new estate property. Crisp Asian pear, apple blossom and stargazer lily aromas lead into a very grippy, tense and chalky palate full of nectarine sorbet, lime rind and tangerine flesh flavors.

The just-bottled, 2017 White M5, Margerum's white Rhone blend, is bright, nuanced and wonderfully focused, with the energy of Grenache driving the wine's personality. Citrus, orchard fruit and floral notes are nicely delineated in this attractive, inviting white.

Crisp and vibrant, with green apple, ruby grapefruit and lemon curd notes that leap out of the glass. Harmonious and intense on the long finish, where an appealing hint of almond skin comes in. Grenache Blanc, Roussanne, Viognier, Marsanne and Vermentino. Drink now. 1,400 cases made.

A blend of 54% Grenache Blanc, 21% Viognier, 14% Marsanne, 8% Roussanne and 3% Vermentino, the 2017 M5 White opens with fresh aromas of musk melon, orange blossom, lime and tangerine with background notes of green pear and stone. Light to medium-bodied, it offers fresh fruits and floral notions with juicy acidity and a textured finish.
