Brandborg Coastal Cuvee White Blend
WHY WE LOVE IT
- Excellent blend from higher altitude vineyards in a cool, coastal climate terroir.
- Fruit is able to hang on the vine longer and develop more complex flavors.
Varietal Composition: Blend of Gewurztraminer, Riesling, Pinot Gris and Sauvignon Blanc
Elaboration: When trying the blend with our focus groups, all made comments about the sea and the crisp spray of the ocean, mixing with the earthiness of the shoreline. So, Coastal Cuvee was born. The wine is a shimmering pale yellow, with golden and green highlights.
Tasting Notes: The blend offers spicy aromas from the Gewurztraminer, floral contributions from the Riesling, green apple from the Pinot Gris and finally, herbal, citrus notes from the Sauvignon Blanc. This harmonious combination is echoed in the flavors of this wine. The wine has a hint of sweetness upon entry, that is well balanced by the long crisp and tangy finish. Just plain delicious and fun, fun, fun. We crafted this wine for pure hedonistic enjoyment.
This easy-drinking, vividly fresh white wine is a blend of 39% Gewürztraminer and smaller portions of Riesling, Pinot Gris and Sauvignon Blanc. Flavors of lemon drop, sweet pineapple and orange peel keep it lively and interesting. It’s an all-purpose summer white that’s a nice break from the usual suspects. – Paul Gregutt, Wine Enthusiast
