Haute Vallee du Gassac White Blend 2008

White peach, pear, white flowers on the nose. The palate has a sweet, almost « moelleux » touch at first with a vibrant acid backbone. White fruits on the size all the way down the acid backbone with a nice grip. A widening finish with white peach again. The Viognier part of this wine overwhelms other varieties on the palate but the Chardonnay part makes it longer and more structured. Very good — 13 hours ago

Montepilas White Blend

@Delectable Wine this is the Orange wine. Looks like a cider, smells like a beer. French weekend day 2. Could use more acidity. — a day ago

Weekly Wednesday Wine Committee lunch...always such a treat to attend. This week, Dan hosted. 1 sparkler, 3 whites, 4 reds and 1 dessert wine. All blind as usual.

Guessing varietals blind is tough enough, but once you start introducing field blends, I want to raise the white flag. My final guesses were Alsatian Pinot Gris or Spanish Albariño. I was semi-on track with my Alsatian guess at least. Lots of floral and orange blossom here. Even some chamomile. Acidity was really low that I understood the Viognier guesses. A nice white from Carlisle.

It’s takes lots of time and tasting. Even then, you can still miss. After I passed my Sommelier exam, we celebrated with four Master Sommeliers. I pour the group red Burgundy blind and all of the Masters missed the call. You’re not alone!

Kaplja Venezia Giulia IGT White Blend 2013

Апельсиновая корка, сушеные абрикосы, оранжевая дыня, цукаты, полевые травы, коньяк, шкурка грецкого ореха. Полное тело с достаточной кислотностью, мягкими танинами и легким алкогольным жаром. Мощно и спело, пока ещё довольно первично, с хорошей концентрацией и глубиной. При всей своей броскости и чуть утомительной яркости неплохо сбалансировано, с аккуратно подтянутой структурой. — 4 days ago

Super cool if you like a moscato style. This one is pure apricots and honey. Gave it a 9.0 based on the fact that it's from Nova Scotia. Novaaaa scotiaaaaaa. — a day ago

Clairette Blanche Stellenbosch White Blend 2017

Celebrating Father’s Day with my first Clairette Blanche. Beautiful honey golden colour, hazy and unfiltered. Nose is caramelized honey & apples, slightly floral. Well balanced with just enough acidity to keep it interesting. The palate is a bit funky with flavours of quince, baked pineapple and blue cheese. Truly remarkable. Paired with bbq chicken thighs, grilled scallions and arugula salad with strawberries. — 7 days ago

Grand Siècle Cuvée Grande Brut Champagne Blend
