Quite expressive, stone and tropical fruits, mineral driven in the end...spicy ginger and full of booze. Slight cheese rind and oak...

A French white at the top of its game. An explosion of exotic fruit seize the senses. Starts sweet on the mid-palate, with notes of pineapple, kiwi fruit and almonds. Finishes with salinity and gravitas. Looking forward to seeing how this evolves with bottle age.
Even wifey gave it a thumbs up!

Weekly Wednesday wine committee. This week we had 1 sparkler, 3 whites, 3 reds, 1 dessert. All tasted blind as normal.

My first guess here was Viognier...should have stuck with it! I ended up guessing gruner-veltliner due to the pepper on the finish. Lots of white flower and beautiful aromatics here.

Drop dead gorgeous. Best condrieu I’ve ever had. Silky smooth, but not buttery. More macadamia driven. Light. Cashew and lemon cream. Fantastic!

I can appreciate this is a well-made wine. That said, Viognier is hot garbage.

Loving the intensity and concentration of this wine! Notes of ripe stone fruits (pear, nectarine, peaches) candy ginger and star jasmine flowers. The palate shows a rich full bodied wine with notes of ginger, stone fruit, star jasmine and a touch of wet stone. Big and rich with enough acidity to keep it honest.

Desert island white. Bone dry with honeysuckle, apricot, floral. Acid barely at a medium level, but enough to enliven the wine. Tasted the 2012.
