Great nose, awesome palate, I was surprised with the elegance this wine shows. Lobster with farm fresh melted butter please!

Had been wanting to try some of these wines after seeing some of the winemakers they’ve brought in. This one is by Steve Matthiasson.

Someone below said this was “white Bordeaux like”, and I think that is SPOT ON. Incredible viscosity. SauvBlanc-Semillon Blend. On the nose, lemon meringue pie with smoked Texas honey. Heavy on the mid-palate with a lingering lemon-tart, grainy/wheaty note on the finish. Very unique. Needs to be served a little warmer than cellar temp.
