Crisp and dry. the subtle complexities Auxerrois is known for, a nice balance between fruit, floral, minerality, and sweet grass. Though this wine showed a much more rich bouquet than most Auxerrois I have had. A perfect choice to accompany sushi.

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.

Similar to Alsatian Pinot Blanc. Pale straw with a touch of green in the glass. Lightly floral nose, thin body with considerable acidity. Crisp apple and citrus flavors dominate, with herbs and some minerality in the aftertaste. Slight toffee notes as it warms. Pleasant, but not very interesting.

Winemaker's Notes:

A lovely wine, made from Alsacian variety Auxerrois, sur lie aged, 20% barrel fermented. Fruit flavors, with apple and lemony aromas smooth and clean on the palate with subtle hints of oak. A delicious dry white wine. Fabulous with grilled salmon.
