Scholium

15.0% ABV | Price: about $32

A bright gold wine made from verdelho grapes. It smells earthy, fishy, floral, savory, buttery, citrusy. I can’t really decide, because it smells like almost everything except fruit.

It fills the mouth. In the middle, it’s got apricot and citrus, and is somewhat like a big, plush Viognier, but there’s the faintest hint of something odd, maybe money coins or sardines, too. It’s hugely alcoholic for a white—15% by volume—and so leaves a hot vapor trail behind. It’s more feeling than taste. This is a white that could stand up to steak.

Curious, odd, interesting, inimitable. We’ve been to school.
