Wine Review: This light straw colored kitchen sink white blend opens a fragrant apricot and lychee like bouquet with a hint of red apple. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a tasty orange and lychee blend with notes of pineapple. I also detect hints of grapefruit. The finish is off-dry and refreshing. This wine would pair linguine and garlic shrimp. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The Whip 2014 is an elegant and balanced wine, fruit driven with a hint of toasty oak. While this is a Chardonnay and Semillon led style, each grape varietal has a purpose in our blend that I hand select to add elements like structure, texture, floral notes, and acidity. This unique wine showcases juicy fruit flavors of white peach, pear and melon with bright acidity and a touch of sweetness that creates a smooth and creamy finish.
