Nose has fresh lychee, ripe pear, dried lemon peel, distant white flowers, crushed hazelnut and wet, neutral wood.
Palate has orange zest, (light) honey, cooked pear and wet sandstone. Medium acidity, but a long finish.
Color is a beautiful, light gold, showing some age.
100% Verdejo, likely could see a 10th birthday with proper storage. Our last bottle.
We've been trying for a (mostly) dry January to break into the New Year, but it's a challenge. We really enjoy cooking, and wine with a meal is like salt or seasoning with your recipe, something to compliment. We decided to limit ourselves to just Sunday nights, and been successful for three weekends now. We have a wine dinner tomorrow and not cooking, so bending the self-imposed law for a Saturday night. Sous-vide, citrus-marinated chicken breasts paired to boiled then convection baked potatoes with reserved bacon fat (we keep a jar in the refrigerator for any occasion, also duck fat) because flavor is the name of the game! — 2 days ago
Crisp and light. Nice hints of citrus, pear and good acidity. Could do well at a nice dinner or on the beach. Organic and a good price. Will definitely keep this in mind for the future. — 5 days ago
