Ken's Wine Rating: Very Good (89)

Review date: December 19, 2012

Wine Review: This pale yellow colored blend is consistently very good. It opens with a mild grapefruit bouquet with hints of orange and lime. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, crisp and lively. The flavor profile is a green apple with nicely integrated minerality and a touch of Bosc pear and grapefruit. The finish is dry and very refreshing. It paired very nicely with the smoky clam chowder we had at 49 Social. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2011 bottling of this distinctive blend opens with a dazzling spectrum of fruit and floral aromas, from crisp white peach, honeyed pear and sweet mango, to touches of fresh jasmine blossom and white chai tea. Filled with bright and juicy fruits, the palate flaunts flavors of succulent white nectarine, candied pineapple, green fig and subtle grapefruit. The crisp and slightly off-dry flavor profile lasts well through the clean and refreshing finish.
