Wine Review: This almost clear colored white blend from Sokol Blosser opens with a mild apricot and wet stone bouquet. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, slightly acidic and a little lively. The flavor profile is a tasty mild mineral infused tangerine with hints of mild peach. The finish is dry and its flavors linger for a little while. This wine is food friendly and would pair well with grilled mahi mahi with a mango salsa. Enjoy – Ken

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.
