This is an interesting wine, made by Adler Fels winery and sold with a cause in mind. Some of the proceeds go to the National Park Foundation. It is a blend of Viognier, Moscato, Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc. Very rustic in the glass, it is a very dark gold in color. An interesting nose of green guava, melon and pear. On the palate, grapefruit, melon and more pear. This wine is not overly acidic and the mouthfeel is quite warm, medium bodied. It drinks nicely and will go well with the pan roasted Cod I am preparing. It runs $13 and gets 87 points from me making it a 3 star wine. Salut….
If you have read my last two posts you will know I jetted off to Bali for the weekend. This is the wine I sipped on my first morning there, sitting poolside reading my wine book. It was the perfect setting, and a great refreshing wine to start my Balinese adventure off with. Here are my notes, I guessed the retail price for fun and hit it right on.
Very aromatic nose with apricots and floral notes
A cross between Riesling and Albariño
Very smooth mouthfeel with a creamy mousse
Not very acidic but well balanced
That makes this wine a 3 star effort in my books and worthy of any summer picnic, pool party or early evening aperitif. Salut….
