Monthly WTF group recap. Theme this month was “bring something special”. Normally we taste all of the wines blind, but we decided to do a relaxed night with amazing wines at a great restaurant. Spectacular evening!

If you aren’t familiar with this label, it’s a unique concept. The winery is located in Fredericksburg, TX yet the wines are from all over the world (fruit is cold shipped to the winery or made in the country they are sourced from). This is probably best now or over the next few years. It has typical orange blossom and honey notes, with a very creamy mid palate...like an orange creamsicle. Lots of sweetness without much nuttiness.

Honeyed apricot, pineapple, and a hint of almond on the nose. Honey, pineapple, and pineapple on the palate flavors. Perhaps a touch thin for sauternes, but high quality nonetheless.

Simply a glimpse at what is to come for this beautiful Sauternes. Orange blossom, honey roasted cashews and sea salt aromatics. Decadent and rich on the palate with candied mango, pineapple and lemon tart. This will hold for a decade or two and will be lights out. Thanks

Well if this isn’t a way to finish off lunch, I don’t know what is!!! Stewed blend of peaches and apricots on the nose. Who the pallet is a long finish of rolling summer stone fruit. Perfect balance! Utopia again! — 9 days ago

Lemon tart and orange pith and floral notes on the nose. Lemon curd and honey on the dry palate. Bright, but well balanced acidity. Medium body and finish.

Crème de Tête Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 1970

very much enjoyed this. At first aromas of turpentine was present but it went away with some aeration. Wine still has refreshing taste that balances well the sweetness....color does not give away its age at all — 5 days ago
