Methode Champenoise Brut New York Sparkling Blend 2012

Nose has lemon juice on granite dust, old lemon zest, apple blossom, lightly toasted grains and green apple peel.

Palate has salted green apple slice, oxidized yellow apple slice, sugar dusted popcorn, yellow cherries, light creamy oak influence with medium acidity/finish. A great wine and effort.

Clos Mogador

Nelin Priorat White Blend 2011

Deeply golden in color by flavor holding up very well for its age. Nose: gold flowers, Meyer lemon skin, touch of preserved lemon, and ripe yellow peaches. Palate: peaches, apricots some dried, Meyer lemon, bruised apples, almonds, dried flowers petals (dried honeysuckle) , chamomile, singed herbs, salt. (In the vein of aged white Rioja but a little rounder and riper.)

Full body, medium to medium + acid.

Opened up nicely with air.

Ravines Wine Cellars

Field Notes Finger Lakes White Blend 2019

Nose has amazing white florals, warmed tart green apple slice, dry seashell, lemongrass, cold salt slab and moist white pepper. Gewürztraminer aromas are quite dominant. (92 points on the nose.)

Palate has pear juice, lemon peel, lightly frizzante, light limestone dust and light sweet note to the finish.

Palate is a little mismatched to the nose, the aromas draw you in but the palate doesn't have the right richness to follow.

Blend of Riesling, Gewürztraminer and Valvin Muscat; White Springs Vineyard in Geneva, NY.

Xisto Ilimitado Douro Branco 2019

Solid 9.0, but only on day 2. Could use some more time in general, I think. But still quite enjoyable with a lot of salinity, pale white fruit, and some floral notes. Medium acid and medium minus body. Tasty. — 3 days ago

Jezreel

Petillant Natural Dabiki White Blend 2019

my fourth vintage of jezreel pet nat.

I'm a huge follower.

i tasted this 2019 on Israel's biggest wine exhibition at January 2020 before it all went berserk.
didn't manage to fetch a bottle when i was looking for it afterwards... it sold out.

but vacationing in Eilat for winter ☀️ we found one when take away-ing some gluten from highly regarded local patisserie.

made from dabiki indigenous white 🍇.

11.5% abv

apple, pear, lemon pie and 🍯 taste and texture. and some green funk.

my wife reckoned it was 🍎 cider when she smelled it.

paired lovely with diy simple breakfast at the hotel (boiled 🥚, tuna, simple 'israeli' salad and simple cheeses)

excellent vfm (59 nis as Eilat is vat free)

Tasty, almost Sauternes like. Has the positive qualities of Sauternes on the nose. Blown out and most likely due to heatwave damage as well as style on the palate. Still delicious enough. For $12 at Costco, it’s great. — 11 days ago
