In the glass, this Mendocino blend of Semillon and Sauv Blanc has a white-gold center surrounded by pale, yellow straw edges and a translucent halo….
The nose jumps out of my glass with a BLAST of lemon peel and petrol ———-> Another sniff unlocks a door to peaches and cream and I’m crushing on this thing HARD…..
A taste starts tart with lemony acid that quickly fades into summer notes of green apple and white pears before LOADS of local honey come out to play ———> The mid-palate shows some savory pie crust and soufflé notes before orange zest and subtle oak set the stage for a KILLER finish….
Looking for a white that starts with refreshing acid and finishes on the savory side???? Wellllllll ———–> then this DELICIOUS blend from Yorkville Cellars has your name written all over it! 🎧🎧🎧 Listen to this wine with something bright, summery, and fun like The Strumbellas – Young and Wild
