Bel Lago Winery Auxerrois 2008
Highly recommended! Winemaker, Charles Edson, Ph.D., originally "discovered this variety on a trip to Alsace, and later enjoyed the variety in Luxembourg and Canada. First planted Auxerrois over 20 Years ago. The wine ages well and should be in its prime through 2016 (if you can find some). Bel Lago was the first winery in the US to receive a label for Auxerrois. This wine is 70% stainless steel fermented with 30% fermented in neutral (7-10 year old) French oak barrels, aged sur-lie to soften and further broaden the flavor profile, without significantly compromising the fruit.
