NEW NATURAL WHITE WINES
I have had the chance to sit down with some suppliers recently and try some delicious Natural White Wines that I am excited to share with you all. What I really enjoy about the selections below is that there's a little something for everyone. From Salinity driven wines that zip across your taste buds to a straightforward Chardonnay, if you like white wines, I have something for you in the selections below.
Bigger mouthfeel than you’d expect for a wine from Vinho Verde. White peach and crisp green apple flavors coat your palate. The subtle sweetness of the peach and the salinity from the green apple play off each other nicely. Soft orange blossom is elongated on the finish thanks to the salinity.
Made with 100% Jacquère with 6 months on the lees, this is a fun vibrant white wine. Salinity coats the palate while subtle green pepper brings along some savory characteristics. Bright grapefruit and lively green apple flavors bring a fruity and crisp finish to the wine.
Subtle stone fruit pairs with guava to bring a nice fruitiness to the introduction of this wine. Delicate herbal characteristics serve as a nice contrast to the fruit while also lightening the palate. Guava and tropical fruit come around on the finish.
Made up of 57% Sauvignon Blanc and 43% Semillon, this white wine takes you on a journey. Tons of tropical fruit coats the palate and seeps into your taste buds. The Semillon brings in a toasted nuttiness that also leads to baked pear notes. Light orange zest characteristics allow the tropical fruit to come back on the finish.
Grenache Blanc, Grenache Gris, Picpoul and Macabeo, this wine has some fruit but enough acidity to balance it out. Green apple and yellow pear coat the palate and bring some subtle salinity. Soft tropical fruit pairs with orange zest to add depth. Delicate minerality creates a profile that reminds me of Sweetarts on the finish.
This is a straightforward Chardonnay that can please a large majority of Chard drinkers. Nice coating mouthfeel works well with soft minerality and notes of pear. The natural malolactic fermentation brings out light oak spice flavor that work very well with the pear profile.
