Approach with Abandon
Biodynamics has existed for nearly a century and is a trusted method for many small and large producers around the world. The varietals in this French white might not be all that familiar to you, but they are absolutely worth getting to know!
Vermentino is similar in style to Sauvignon Blanc, so is an easy transition for anyone looking to try something new without getting too adventurous.
When paired together with the more popular, medium-bodied, low tannin Viognier, you get a beautiful blend that is a nicely balanced wine.
The harvest is made at night to protect the grapes from oxydation and preserve optimum freshness. Grapes are then directly pressed without maceration, the wine is cooled down and left one fine lees. The two grapes varieties are blended and aged on fine lees in neutral content to bring complexity to the wine.
Viognier can be a tough sell around here. I’m very glad the Goddess of Wine persists, with new adventures like this. Very worthwhile choice for the Mystery Case.
Thoughts of Roses and lilies come to mind.. It is surprisingly Fresh.Tingly. but not effervescent.
