Editorial Reviews for St. Supery Vineyards Virtu Meritage
51% Semillon, 49% Sauvignon Blanc Big melon aromas greet the nose along with well judged oak spice that sets off an apple pie tone to the nose along with gorgeous creamy vanilla notes. Apple pie ala mode all over this nose. Smooth and rich with early oak spice and that great creaminess, in texture and flavor wrapped up in subtle herb and orchard fruit flavors. White peach and lemon along with green apple and melon all come together on the palate. This lacks the gravitas of some of these wines but makes up for with terrific intensity and good complexity. Some raw almond flavors some out on the backend and fade on the slightly oak spiced, heirloom apple toned finish. There’s a touch of tannin adding texture here as well. This is drinking very well indeed. 91pts
Bright aromas of lemon zest, guava and pink grapefruit combine with seductive nuances of toasted oak and sur lie maturation. The flavors follow with lemon zest, lychee, guava, grapefruit rind and a subtle creaminess enhanced by the smoky barrel notes. This is a vibrant, textured wine with tremendous flavor. Enjoy!
