A white wine from La Sirena? Sure. But it's not just any white wine. This is a dry-style Muscat Canelli. Most Muscat is made into sweet, dessert wine. But not this time. With Moscato Azul, you have all the beautiful perfumy, floral character of varietal Muscat Canelli, without the sugar! It's a delightful, fun white wine to go with an assortment of tropical, citrusy, or Pacific Rim type foods. Try striped bass sauteed with orange zest, olive oil, sea salt and a splash of Muscat, or shrimp tacos with Mango salsa! Just chilled on its own, it is also delightful as a summer sipper.
91 ParkerA beerenauslese-styled offering, the 2005 Eisrébe possesses superb acidity, wonderful honeyed apricot and peach marmalade-like notes, and good underlying acidity. With 8% natural alcohol and 22% residual sugar, it is quite sweet, but it is not cloying because of the good acidity. Enjoy it now.
93 AGA stony coolness from the combination of the old vines and the stainless ferments brings a level of restraint and austerity that adds elegance to the layers that quickly build up on the palate. Fruit density from the low yielding vines and toasty notes from the barrel ferments add richness and length. For a cool climate chardonnay it displays remarkable amounts of fruit alongside the expected notes of citrus, stone and oyster shell brininess.
Spicy and boisterous aromas in the glass make the Gewurztraminer truly special and unique. Rose oil and lychee elements along with more classic poached stone fruit notes dominate to nose. The natural structure of this variety coupled with barrel fermentation in new oak adds structure and depth with notes of vanilla and nut spice which further round out the complexity. The exotic aromas are echoed on the palate with a creamy richness without being too heavy.
Lovely interplay between decadent notes of honey and jasmine alongside mouthwatering and lifted notes of green citrus and lemon zest. Showcases some of the density and golden nature of roussanne and viognier, while also shining with grenache blanc vibrancy. Tangerine and clove. Classic Kimsey notes of sea salt and crunchy stone fruit. Grapefruit and truffle honey. Remains fresh and poised with precision and push. An absolute joy to drink today.Inviting nose of beeswax, poached pear, kiwi and spiced walnuts. Silky with notes of pink grapefruit, white peach and sea salt. Sumptuous and seamless texture lifted by a vibrant and fresh push on the finish.
92 POINTS - VINOUS -- ANTONIO GALLONI
Green-tinged gold. Vibrant, mineral-accented scents of pear, tangerine and lemon zest, with a hint of iodine in the background. Dry, nervy and precise but showing very good concentration to its orchard and citrus fruit flavors. The mineral quality repeats emphatically on the spicy, focused, very long finish.
