Lemon and lime on the nose, floral with a touch of honey and melon.
Big acid that dances on the back of your palette.

Riesling- honey, crisp apple. Big acid that can handle spices of thanksgiving. Works well with the flavors working against it.

1st of 3 Mendoza Malbecs for NYT Wine School. Uco Valley, high altitudes, calcarean soil, fermented in concrete eggs. Medium/deep purple, blackberry and mint on the nose. Blackberry, plum, boysenberry, mint, pepper, and minerals on the palate. Needed a lot of time to open up. Some alcohol burn. It’s good and well made but doesn’t change my overall impression that Malbecs are kind of boring. — 2 months ago
This is the best Chardonnay made in the USA. Done in concrete so you get aeration of light fruit flavor but no butter finish of oak. Flowery notes in smell and taste. — 8 days ago
Tonight I have opened the 2017 Te Awanga Rod McDonald Mister Sauvignon Blanc.
On the nose there is generous amounts of lime, guava, grapefruit, kiwi fruit, nectarine, white flowers, minerality and wet concrete.
On the palate I am finding nice citrus, lime, white peach, green apple, kiwi fruit, nectarine, celery, herbs and minerality.
This wine is medium bodied with medium + acidity that moves nicely into a long clean citrus finish. Have a continued great weekend and please stay safe. Nostrovia! 🥂🥂🥂🥂 — 19 days ago
First, this wine was previously in a grey bottle, Why? Beginning with the 2017 vintage, the wine is in a clear bottle, which to me has a much better appeal, to see the wine! Fruit sourced from Monterey County, pale lemon-lime color with aromas of tropical and citrus fruits and slight biscuit notes. This wine is unoaked and fermented in stainless and concrete tanks. On the palate, crisp, with flavors of apple, melon and peach adding in some citrus zest. Balanced acidity, medium body and finish ending slightly on the creamy side. Drink young while its fresh!

Family-owned winery, founded by the Williams Family in 1981, devoted to sustainable principles and producing wines with respect for terroir. Fermented in new French oak barrels, usually four to five days then racked to concrete vessels to complete fermentation sur lie for 10 months. Pale light gold with medium+ aromas of floral, stone and citrus fruits. On the palate this full-bodied wine shows flavors of peach, tart apple and lemon peel flavors. Long finish with generous acidity ending with an earthy nutty wet stone character. Nice! Tasting Sample. — 19 days ago
