Silverdale, WA 11.5% alc. (Purchased on 12/27/14)
40% Xarello 30% Macabeo 30% Parallada
Color & Clarity: Brilliant pale straw with excellent color and clarity; steady, but rather slow bubble stream .
Aromas: Very pleasant nose of grapefruit, lemon and pear…more fruit forward than yeasty.
Flavors: Very nice effervescense in the mouth when served ice cold; quite sparkly and alive; flavors of lemon/lime, green apple and more grapefruit and pear, just like the aromas.
Texture: Light and lilting with excellent acidity that perfectly cut right through our truffle and porcini gnocchi with a rich creamy alfreddo sauce with ham, mushrooms, peas, carrots and soy beans.
Finish: Any yeastiness shows up with a touch of toasted almond in the fairly long, lemony finish. Very flavorful and refreshing.
