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. — 4 days ago
Vintage 2016 / Pampering ourselves with a Saturday lunch in the garden: pumpkin soup, good bread, ripe Roquefort and ripe pears. This Sauternes from sauvignon blanc, semillon and muscadelle is obviously very young (first bottle from my box). Shy smell with light impression of apricot and honey. But amazing taste already, perfect balanced wine! — 24 days ago
