Whitehaven

Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2020

I always liked Whitehaven NZ SB. Another great vintage, totally consistent with previous. I use this Sauvignon Blanc for my signature left over Thanksgiving dish - Turkey pot pie - and drink half the bottle while making it. 😎 — 6 days ago

Gemischter Satz White Blend 2018

I really need to stop storing whites in my food fridge when they seem to always open once reaching a cellar temp. Here's a fun little field blend that takes to warming well. Chardonnay, Weissburgunder, Grüner Veltliner, Roter Veltliner and Riesling. What I'd call a silver-skinned nose - green herbal scents mixed into flint and smoke. A little bit of texture and bite, interplay of high acid and cream. Lands nicely with apples, pears, kumquat, and starfruit and that little bite which I love. — 5 days ago

Alphonse Mellot

La Moussière Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Smells of melon with mango and cream (maybe an orange creamsicle). I could smell this all day. Some faint hints of lemon follows at the end. Hit with a sweet fruit taste initially quickly followed by a lemon sourness that lingers along with a cloying cream-like taste. Really nice acid. Had with salmon which went perfectly. — 4 days ago

2019 disgorgement. For being 80% Pinot meunier (and 20% Pinot noir) this sure drinks like the percentages are opposite. Whenever I’m drinking Pinot meunier heavy champagnes, I normally find a distinct gummy fruit/fruit snacks note. And while this is no Jerome Prevost La Closerie, it is in that vein of rich and espresso driven. The use of perpetual reserve (dating back to 2003) certainly helps with the richness and beautiful golden color. Golden raspberries, creamy espresso and cranberry scone aromatics. Great mousse with caramel dipped Granny Smith apple and chalky limestone highlight the palate with the kiss of nougat showing at the finish.

It’s not often a meunier champagne has me intrigued, and up until recently, that short list contained Jerome Prevosts’ La Closerie, Egly-Ouriet’s Les Vignes de Vrigny and Laherte Freres’ offerings, but this Mousse Fils L’Or d’Eugene is undoubtedly in that company, especially at its price (cheaper than the others).

Sandlands

California Chenin Blanc 2016

This is my last bottle of the the 2016 Chenin Blanc “California” designation. We consumed this alongside the 2016 Huet Vouvray “Le Mont” Sec, you know, for fun! This wine pours a bright golden color with medium viscosity. The nose is mostly honeyed with white flowers. On the palate, quince, a touch of lime and a whole sheared sheep full of lanolin; more than any Chenin I can readily recall. Mouthfeel is creamy. Medium acid? I dunno, it’s kinda sneaky and might be closer to Medium+ but it doesn’t seem to have the acid that more recent vintages of Sandlands Chenin. Still, very tasty and seemed pretty young FWIW. — 4 days ago

Talinay Calcáreo Costero Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Strong citrus. Citrus and grassy herbal notes. Intense minerals. I find it very hard to judge these young Sauvignon Blanc de garde. It’s clear how much is there but the wine is not yielding much pleasure at the moment. — 5 days ago

Red Willow Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2019

New vintage for me. Pale white, excellent clarity. Notes of hay and citrus with a hint of peach in nose. Flavors of grapefruit and lemon, as stated on label; hint of apple, real length of fruit on the lemon. Nice acidity, slightly drying on palate from acid and skin astringency. Really good food wine here, I would think — 14 days ago
