Summers in Georgia — 4 days ago
These brutal TX summers can make it difficult to crave heavy meals, so some sort of grazing board with lots of options is definitely ideal.
A quick note: Even for me, opening Aubert this young is usually something I don’t even consider (aside from their Hudson). After enjoying some other 2017s that someone opened earlier this week, I was surprised at how open they were. I believe the vintage gives these wines more opulent and early enjoyment than normal.
As always, I believe this to be Aubert’s most acid driven wine. Almost spritz like. Aromatically it is a mix of bright citrus, honeysuckle, honey roasted cashews and lemon confit. On the palate, the entry shows strong acidity before it fades away. Lemon cream, ginger, copious amounts of tropical fruit and a somewhat surprising kiss of mineral/limestone. Aubert’s entire lineup is among the best, but this is normally towards the back of the pack for my taste profile (which means it’s still among the best Cali chards, in my opinion). — 6 months ago
Interesting varietal. Not terribly complex but pleasant. Not remembering the price point. Purchased at the winery. — a month ago
Grapefruit, flint, grassy herbs, Meyer lemon, and hints of chalk. Drinks very easily without being boring. Refreshing with a delicate, but tasty finish. Great for these 110 F Phoenix summers. — 6 months ago
Perfect sparkling rose. Dry, crisp, and very easy to drink on a warm summers day. Great price point too! — 6 months ago
Had with lamb shanks. Not a very exciting wine. I’m sure we paid more for this at the winery than lots of the under $20 wines from Houston Costco that we enjoyed more earlier this year. — 2 months ago
Really enjoyable bottle of wine. Perfect for a hot summers evening — 6 months ago
