Neighborhood, 2020 White Wine ‘Caprese’
Its beauty is in its simplicity. Mozzarella. Tomato. Basil. Olive Oil. Balsamic Vinegar. No secrets. It’s a salad that asks: Why complicate things? And when done correctly on a warm afternoon beside a pool, a caprese salad is paradise! Caprese is Pinot Grigio dominant, although we did add a small amount of hard-pressed Chenin Blanc to the blend just before bottling. The resulting wine is pale-yellow in color with striking green apple acidity. Light citrusy flavors of cut lemon, sour candy and green mango are complemented by sea salt salinity and floral oolong tea. This is our idea of a summer’s afternoon, poolside wine.
