Palazzo Cuvee Blanc 2014
Critical Acclaim (2013)
Wine Advocate 94 - The 2013 Cuvée Blanc, which got my highest score, is again nearly all Semillon with just a touch of Sauvignon Blanc. It offers notes of orange rind, lemon honey, caramelized grapefruit once again, and a touch of tropical fruit in a lovely, medium to full-bodied, beautifully layered and textured style. This is superb stuff to drink over the next decade or more.
A beautiful & elegantly crafted white wine inspired by the great White Wines / Bordeaux Blanc of France.
The Palazzo 2013 Cuvee Blanc is a delicious blend of Semillon, with a just a touch of Sauvignon Blanc! Exotic & incredibly aromatic on the nose, the wine is 'floral & seductive' with intense aromas of pear, orange peel & acacia honey. On the palate the wine has a rich, oily texture & weight ... yet balanced beautifully by stunning acidity! Wonderful peach, pineapple & stone fruit flavors fill your mouth ... eventually giving way to an extremely long finish ... especially for a white wine! A really Superior Food Wine to be enjoyed!
