Wine: Chateau Turcaud
Varietal: White Bordeaux (Sauvignon Blanc, Semillion blend)
Food Pairing: Salt baked sea bass with citrus and herbs
This wine was the collective impact of rednecks and pick up trucks. Whites have officially taken a place in my starting line up. This white was complex enough to keep me interested yet not too sweet or acidic for my knuckle-dragging palate. Reminded me of driving down my childhood gravel drive way while eating a tangerine.
This white Bordeaux is pale straw in color with granny smith apples, grapefruit and lime zest on the nose. The green veggie characteristics, notably asparagus and green grass, hit you immediately on the nose but fade a bit on the palate. The finish is longer then I deserve for only paying $13.50 and is reminiscent of gravel dust.
