Teutonic Wine Company

Rosé Blend 2018

Pic #2. 2018 Teutonic Wine Company “Seafoam” Oregon. Pinot-based rosé wine with a pale salmon hue, and lively notes of plum, apricot, and peach, balanced with moderate acidity to lend structure on the palate. Paired with a lovely hiramasa crudo bathed in a plum aguachile, with kohlrabi, fresh plum, and celery. #teutonicwinecompany #oregonwine #rosewine — 2 months ago

Bodegas El Sitio

Islas Canarias Malvasia Aromática 2018

My exploration of Canarian wines #2
From Tenerife.
Rich golden yellow in the glass and full of spicy peaches & pears with a dab of honey. On the palate this is quite rich, but with a core of volcanic, spicy & salty minerality that binds it all together. Nicely balanced and with a very decent finish. This is quite nice actually.
