Night jasmine, citrus blossom, kaffir lime and crisp honeydew waft from of the glass fooling you into thinking the wine could be sweet. Instead, the wine is taut and cleanses your palate with flavors of fresh mandarin, Meyer lemon curd and a subtle brininess on the finish that leaves you craving another sip.
Food Pairing Notes
The 2014 has even more brightness and acidity than previous vintages and so we decided to pair this with an extremely simple dish — oysters with a mignonette. The wine cuts through the brininess on the finish while adding a slight creaminess. This also pairs well with fresh crab, curries, herb infused beurre blancs and Thai inspired dishes.
