Honey, oranges, mangoes, peaches. All the tropicals.
Ah man, Bloomer Creek just makes me happy. Every time I see their bottles at a retailer, I pretty much have to cop it. Today it was from Frankly Wines in TriBeCa.
Great selection and knowledge at this shop.
A little character in this one, reminding me a bit of an orange wine. Dry and got a nice minerality, but also a honeycomb sweetness and finally a bit of a zing (kind of like the herby citrusy crossover that pine needles have). I went on a guided hike in the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Biologist guide pointed out all the things we could eat in the forest. And we did. No one got sick. My dad told long, unnecessary stories to the other troop members. Ah, simpler times.
This is a glass where you close your eyes, everything else melts away, and you enjoy the simplicity, the balance, the crisp sips. — 9 days ago
Tried to switch it up from my go to Chateau St. Micheal Riesling which is hard for me to do but, this one is actually better. The fruit taste is more tropical. Smooth finish. I used to be savingnon blanc guy in the summer , but summer 2021 I'm turning in to Riesling Man 🏔 😎 — a day ago
This needed some time — a bit reductive at first. But then it developed nicely and was very delicious! I think they were likely aiming for Chablis and while I don’t think it has the minerality of Chablis, it is a nice example from a cool climate. — 5 hours ago
Low alcohol sparkling wine, cider-esque — 10 days ago
Structured and concentrated but racy; petrol-forward; fruit is plenty ripe but there is a green, herbal component; sort of harsh but the finish brings a softer, honeyed note. A bit lacking for pleasure now, but very interested to revisit this a couple years down the line. — 8 hours ago
Questioned why I bought this before opening, but after the bottle was finished I remembered why!!
Gewurztraminer is very underrated. Wine was light gold color. Massive floral nose with white peaches and honey. Nice balance of acidity and sweetness. Quite lovely. Try it! — 21 days ago
