DRINKS BEST: Now – 5 Years
A true ‘field blend’ coming to us from two South African rock stars, this gem showcases the best of South Africa – a little old world, a little new, and a lot of unique flavor. Complex aromatics of honeysuckle, candied lemon, and pear combine with light magnolia notes. Vibrant Chenin-driven acidity plays nicely with the weight of Marsanne & Roussanne before giving way to a medium-bodied, textured finish.
What do I like to drink?
While I fell in love with wine in California, I’m a Francophile at heart – Burgundy, Champagne, Rhone, and Loire account for the majority of my personal drinking. I love balanced wines with layers of flavor, and wines that pair with a wide variety of food. I probably have the most traditional palate on the team, and I’m okay with that.
