Winery Tasting Notes: “This unique blend was fun for us to work on. We have always enjoyed working with sauvignon blanc, and exploring blending possibilities with JULES Mélange over the years has been invigorating. Sauvignon Blanc brings a bright, yet ripe fruit character to the wine. There are nice stone fruits and an appealing well balanced mouthfeel. The Albarino is a crisp, fresh wine that lends a wonderful freshness to the blend and bring in just the right amount of citrus green fruit. Together these wines work very well and create a uniquely assembled blend that is fun and versatile.”
