Tasting notes week of July 14, 2011

This week, two stunning white wines that are very different from one another in style, yet can pair well with sauteed scallops or other white fish dishes. They both have a mineral nature with medium plus acidity that pairs well with so many styles of cuisine, and are delicious on their own on a warm summer day.

 macari 2010 Macari Sauvignon Blanc “Katherine’s Field”

Style note: Refreshing and vibrant, this racy Sauvignon Blanc offers crisp minerality and notes of fresh, ripening tree fruit fruit (apricot) and fresh cut grass.

 502132009 Galil Mountain Winery Viognier

Style note: Incredible delicious aromatic wine with very subtle oak that gives it a round character and some spice and dimension. Delicious ripe apricot fruit on the nose and palate, with crisp minerality that results in a long length and very crisp finish. Excellent paired with scallops and white fish.
