Millbrook Winery Tocai 2011
Editorial Reviews for Millbrook Winery Tocai
Nicely aromatic with notes of tree bark, herb and a hint of minty spice accenting the pear and white peach fruit. A lot of trapped CO2 here lends this a bit of a spritz on the palate. Nice, fairly rich feel in the mouth, this has classic bitter apple, pear, almond and subtle herb flavors. The acid is bright but well integrated lending this a large yet clear impression in the mouth. Delicious pear and bitter herb stem flavors on the finish end with a spark of earthy minerality. Wow, this is really good. 91pts
Very aromatic, with grassy notes and bits of citrus. Very acidic but with a great, long, semi-sweet finish.
Semi-carbonated, cooked pear and oak aroma. The mouth is very gentle and has nice acidity on the finish.
citrus nose, a little minerality, very aromatic, a bit of spearmint, bright acidity, refreshing
Wow, NY wines have come a long way since I was in college. This was pleasant, light on its feet. There was a little nutty presence and a lychee note, a little white peach and Asian pear. Enough fruit on the back end to give a sense of sweetness but not sweet--and just enough white gravel to give it a little minerality.
a bit mineral for me on the front-end, but getting some citrus on the back.
Floral scent and Citrus fruits come out immediately. I can almost taste a bit of saltiness too.
Sweet and fruity. Delightful mouthful, acidic and bubbly.
