Sigurd Blanc 2015

Said to be a 'Wines of intrigue and natural appeal,' those boxes have definitely been ticked. The intrigue factor has been cranked up with ease. A simple label and wax seal offers immediate impact to the eye.

A curious blend of Gargenega, Marsanne and Gewürztraminer, percentages unknown.

Looks like reconstituted apple juice in appearance, some skin contact has done its thing here. One whiff and the senses go wild. Every other whiff comes up with something new. Rose water, musk, honey mead, canned apricots, marigold flowers. Some lemon curd but not. Some peach skin but not. Spiced fruit lingers and the delivery is generous.

It's zippy and lively yet has a mellow side. I just want another glass.

Drink within the next few years.

Very good.
