In The Glass: Montinore Borealis 2011

photo (35)Wow, what an enjoyable wine! Alluring vibrant aromas of tropical fruits, Key Lime Pie and Apple Jolly Ranchers lead to mouthwatering, fruit forward similar flavors, ending in a clean, refreshing, dry and well balanced finish with a shot of lime zest.  Borealis, The Northern Whites 2011 Willamette Valley white table wine, from Oregon’s Montinore Estate, is a blend of 38% Riesling, 24% Müller-Thurgau, 23% Pinot Gris and 14% Gewürztraminer. The label states, “A Wine To Light Up Your Night.” Indeed, I can’t agree more. Priced at $16 dollars, this is worth every penny.

    Thanks Julia! We acutually did some blending trials of the ’12 vintage today. It is such a fun wine to make!

    • I’m looking forward to trying it! Is a spring release planned? As you can see, I really enjoyed the ’11 🙂
