Many of you who are familiar with my reviews know that I don't review many white wines as I don't like many of them. I also am the type of wine drinker who appreciates a white wine in warmer climates and believing that if I don't have anything good to say then don't say it....white wines are not often reviewed.
For those of you following my blogs, you are aware that recently I visited a vine yard on my doorstep. Well...after trying this white wine, I shall be returning very soon!
Let's cut to the chase, this wine blew me away! It is $15.55 of pure delicious nectar! No, not just a so so wine, this wine is as good as some of the Californian whites I have tasted for almost double the price. In the middle of winter I was cooking a seafood dish that called for white wine and so , well ...in went William 2012.... I took a sniff....impressed, I took a sip....oh boy...this was truly delicious. Suddenly images of sitting around the pool sipping this white wine by the case full was truly not that far fetched!
It's a wonderful pale yellow in colour. On the nose it is light and fruity with pear and maple caramel tones.
On the palate there was a lively refreshing acidity. Citrus fruits came through with a delicious dry energy and then a delicious butter caramel note. There is a short finish but this only leaves you wanting to ur more!
Congratulations Rivière du Chêne.....I'll be back for more!
