2017 Field Recordings Hock White

It’s hump day! Enjoying this Alsatian blend of noble grapes out of California! Fresh and dried apricots, pears, Meyer lemons, sweet lemon rind, and sweet hay notes on the nose. Apricots, peaches, prickly pear, and lemon on the palate. There’s just a HINT of sweetness to this that makes it a great pairing to spicy food like Indian, Thai, or Szechuan!

2013 Weingut Fitz-Ritter Gewürztraminer Spätlese

Changing it up today with a slightly off-dry German Gewürz. Classic Gewürz nose of lychee, white flowers, sweet apple, and some fresh and dried apricots. Off-dry on the palate with lychee, white grapefruit, and honey. Finishes with some confectioners sugar sprinkled on lemon.

Last Night’s Tasting:
Got to hang with winemaker Xavier Arnaudin of L’union Sacré. He showed off some of his extraordinary wines including #pinotnoir #cabernetsauvignon and #gewurztraminer. Well done, @unionsacre ! #centralcoastwine

More Riesling, mixed in with some Gewurztraminer. Both are awesome white wines for the spring!

These were some of my favourites when I visited a few wineries in Niagara-on-the-Lake in August. Read all about it here:
