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.

Crème de Tête Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 1970

very much enjoyed this. At first aromas of turpentine was present but it went away with some aeration. Wine still has refreshing taste that balances well the sweetness....color does not give away its age at all — 3 days ago

Really enjoyable with the multiple styles of desserts that we had. Not too sweet.. unlike most Sauternes that I have had. Very nice — 3 days ago

Château La Tour Blanche

Donation Osiris Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2016

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

Honeyed apricot, pineapple, and a hint of almond on the nose. Honey, pineapple, and pineapple on the palate flavors. Perhaps a touch thin for sauternes, but high quality nonetheless.

Château d'Yquem

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2007

Well if this isn’t a way to finish off lunch, I don’t know what is!!! Stewed blend of peaches and apricots on the nose. Who the pallet is a long finish of rolling summer stone fruit. Perfect balance! Utopia again! — 6 days ago

Not the best bottle of this I've had. Another reward from Total Wine for a long week on the road. Nevertheless, a nice deep Sauternes and a pleasant surprise. — 25 days ago
