Tasting Note:April 14, 2016

The only white sent to us from Crux Winery. Crystal clear pale yellow. Beautiful and complex nose. Started out with a slight chalk and stones that was quickly overpowered by tropical fruits, citrus, and white pears. After 30 minutes or so in the glass it opened up with some undertones of lychee and light honeysuckle. Solid moderate acidity (7/10) and moderate plus body with a grippy mid palate. Started off with sweet apples and some stone fruit to finish off the palate. Acidity carries through the moderate plus finish. Lingers for a few seconds and best enjoyed just above fridge temperature.

This is a blend of 95% Viognier and 5% Grenache Blanc. Only 95 cases produced.
