Food Pairings for Scholium Project Naucratis Lost Slough Vineyards
Intense Verdelho, with insanely good QPR. Aromas of banana salt water taffy, sea salt, lime zest, grapefruit, and granny smith apples. The flavors explode in your mouth in a wash of citrus, tropical fruits, mineral, stone, and more sea salt. Very dry, very acidic with a long, lingering aftertaste that hints at a great future for this wine. Outstanding for $20. Note to self: mortgage house if necessary when its time for next Scholium allocation.Wish I had more than 2x of these.
This is perhaps our most successful naucratis ever. Perhaps not as beautifully aromatic as the 2006, but as powerful as the 07 and utterly dry and balanced. The fruit was perfectly ripe and still quite floral and with good acidity at harvest; the fermentation was easy and complete; there was no transfer of flavors from the lees; we halted malolactic pretty early and thoroughly; and we bottled when the wine was ready. Very nice.
