Like being stranded in the desert and finding an oasis. Or stumbling upon a mirage. It depends on your view.
Strange and unusual and overwhelmingly addictive but in the same breath a little cloying and annoying.
Abrasive minerality, aggressive herbaceous-ness, pronounced acidity. Steely Chardonnay-esque plonk on the palate. A long, sour, grassy finish.
All of it enticing, an evocation of terroir, so, so, so not Bordeaux Blanc, but weirdly appealing in a deer in the headlights sort of way. A cross of medicinal with luxe.
Price $30 at Everything Wine (which is too expensive for the purely adventurous I think but something I will buy again, probably many times over).
Market Liquidity: A diamond in the scrubby rough of tasteless, bland and nondescript Semillon which sinks the BC marketplace.
