2016 Chasing Harvest Branco

2016 Chasing Harvest Branco

Reppin’ my home city of Chi-dogo with this product of a wine-making venture based here. This is a Portuguese white that’s quite fab. Lemon, pear, apples, green herbs, tarragon, wet stone, and a whiff of cashews and marzipan on the nose. Lemons and apples on the palate with defined green herb notes, stone, and raw nuts.
