Little Straw Vineyards 2011 Tapestry - 89pts
Availability: Direct from winery here
Production: 1000 cases
Date Tasted: September 27th, 2012
Tasting Notes: The aptly named Tapestry, weaves together the varietal characters of Riesling, Auxerrois, Gewurztraminer, Siegerrebe and Schonburger. Light potpuri, rose, lychee, citrus and Asian pear aromas make for a pleasing, joyous nose and the perfect prelude to the off-dry, vibrant and tangy palate to follow. Apple, pear, pineapple, papaya and grapefruit flavours are supported by a nice balance between the full-ish texture produced from 17 g/l of residual sugar and the proportionate citrus acid that leaves a tangy finish with hints of mineral and spice notes. Easy drinking, to be sure, but with more going on than your average crowd-pleasing, off-dry white blend. Drink now-2014.
