Crushpad Töövi Alder Springs 2008 - California, Mendocino
13,7% abv; 50/50 Marsanne - Roussanne. From forumite and friend Asko's project in Crushpad, California. Sees a little time in neutral oak. Quite a lovely scent: something refreshingly greenish yet the fruit is broad and honeyed. It manages to be savoury and mineral despite the fruit and generous richness of body. And best of all, the acidity seems on the high end for a blend of white Rhône varieties. I rarely say this about Rhône white grapes, but this was moreish. Very good.
