Community Tasting Notes 5

    April 4, 2019 - Interesting. I didn't recall having one of these already, and looking at my previous note, clearly the last bottle showed better for me than this one is. Not sure if that's due to bottle variation or my mindset today (it's been a rough one), but here we are. Crisp, stony, and minerally, with lime and seashells, some green apple, and good acidity, but not of interest beyond that. Basically a simple wine that works well enough to pair with shellfish and the like, but not something that can hold a spotlight without the right food. 85 feels generous tonight.

    January 28, 2019 - Medium straw yellow color. Aromas of grapefruit, grass, lemon, lime, wet rocks, seashells, and minerals. Medium(+) body, medium acid and finish, and flavors of lemon, lime, grapefruit, and minerals. Pair with seafood, rawbar, brightly dressed salads, and outdoor quaffing in the summertime. 87-88

    June 23, 2018 - Perfect seafood white. Toasty vanilla, golden, nice sharpness on back end - an anti-chard perhaps, but a wonderful match for swordfish, oysters, or mahi.

    February 16, 2018 - Terrific value. Pineapple, honey, and citrus - nice edge on the back end gives it's pedigree away. Superb with seafood. Recommend.
