Sémillon Sauvignon Blanc Blend

Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2016

@delectable this is sauvignon only officially (90 percent so it doesnt count as a blend even with that semmilon bit)

no real conditions for a tasting but this is so lovely i have to try describing it.

90% sauvignon blanc
10% semmilion

three types of yeast were added to fermentation.
one year burgundy barrels ageing.

13.3% abv

medium plus body.
high acidity.

mind and senses blowing sauvignon blanc.

melon, grass and bell pepper 👃

bitterness first with added citrus peel and some tropics 👄

light 🎯

complex and balanced lingering pleasure.

this is superb.

3rd white from feldstein and it keeps getting better.

super vfm (for 90 nis as part of a threesome. regular price is 125 nis and still worth it)

paired well with zaatar and 🍅 spicy salad and homemade hummus and pita bread.

my highest score wine in delectable.

Château Coutet

Sauternes-Barsac Sémillon Blend 2009

Surprisingly subtle and refined on the palate. Beautiful bright flavors of tangerine and kumquat are a great counterpoint to the apricot marmalade. — 4 days ago

Had an ‘88 two months ago that was still so youthful as well. Great wines.

Cuvée Méline Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2018

The ‘Cuvee Meline’ is a beautiful white wine made by the talented Dr. Kit Singh. On the nose this has good range from honeysuckle to cantaloupe and shades of Pink Lady apple that all connect in the glass. The palate has a good combination of freshness and weigh, delivering bright orchard and citrus fruit flavors that combine with minerals and shades of wild mushroom. While delightful in its youth, this will evolve well over the next decade. Drink 2019-2026- 91

Ashes & Diamonds Winery

Blanc No 2 Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2016

Low alcohol 12.5%. Semillion/Sauvignon Blanc blend very well done. Limes and already a hint of hazelnuts. Like a white Bordeaux made in California. I mean this in a good way! — 2 days ago

Château Coutet

Chartreuse de Coutet Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend

Nose has ridiculous over-ripe apricot, almond oil, marzipan, meringue cookie and cold butter.

Palate has warmed apricot pie with extra flakey, buttery crust, sweet sand, white flower honey and green mango.

Just delicious, would pair well with an English, firm 🐄 cheese.
Great finish for Father's Day (2019).
