Parducci Sustainable White 2008

“I was in love with a beautiful blonde once. She drove me to drink; that’s the one thing I’m indebted to her for.”  — W. C. Fields in Never Give a Sucker an Even Break

Mendocino White Company Sustainable White 2008

The color on this gem is a very pale yellow, like a citrine.  This has a much higher sensory effect than the Sustainable Red (discussed yesterday, see below).  The nose and mouth feel are a delightful combination of flowers, sweetness, lemons and peaches.  The finish is lengthy and sweet.  Drinking this is reminiscent of taking a nap in a sun-drenched field in May, with a cooling breeze counter-acting the sun rays.

The wines alcohol content is 13.5%.  Cork closure.  The grapes were sourced from Mendocino County.  The grape varietals are:  chenin blanc 41.5%, sauvignon blanc 38%,  viognier 12%,  muscat canelli 7.5%,  fruilliano 1%.  The suggested retail is $11 USD.  This is a terrific value for this price-point.  It tastes much more expensive than eleven bones.   Wine Harlots love great price-quality ratio’s.  The wine was a sample provided by the Mendocino Wine Company.

The music play in this was “Here Comes the Sun” by the Beatles from the classic album Abbey Road, ’cause drinking this is like sunshine in a glass.  Cheers!
