Wine Review: The Apothic white blend is light straw in color and medium bodied. It opens with an inviting floral bouquet that includes vanilla bean, pleasant mineral notes and hints of kiwi and tangerine. The blend of Chardonnay, Riesling and Pinot Grigio are nicely integrated in this wine. The smoothness of the Chardonnay, the refreshing Riesling and the Pinot Grigio all contribute on the palate that is syrupy and round. That lead to light honey and vanilla flavors with hints of peaches and apricots. The finish is slightly dry and the flavors fade away nicely. I would pair this white blend with mango chicken. - Joe

Winemaker Notes: Apothic White blends Chardonnay, Riesling and Pinot Grigio for a medium-bodied wine with vibrant layers of flavor. Riesling lends Apothic White its floral notes and firm acidity. Chardonnay adds texture and body, while Pinot Grigio contributes refreshing flavors of juicy pineapple, peach and apricot, leading to a crisp, balanced finish.

Your comments on this wine:





Cork Lore: A cork tree must be at least 25 years old before its bark can be harvested the first time, but it cannot be used for wine stoppers until the third harvest. Cork trees can be stripped of their bark no more than every 9 to 12 years. In one harvest, enough cork is removed from the average tree to make 4,000 wine stoppers.
