Sean Thackrey "La Pleïade #1" California White Blend
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Medium yellow. Slightly high-toned aromas of yellow apple, dried fruits, nuts and spices. Dry and chewy in the mouth, with a pronounced phenolic character to the flavors of pear skin, cyanic peach pit, green almond and bitter herbs. Suggests a good bit of skin contact. Not a fruity style but this distinctly idiosyncratic blend should be endlessly flexible with food. Hipster alert!
Yes, he finally did it. A white wine from Sean Thackrey. Made a lot like the Pleiades red, a blend of many different grape varieties. A fruit-driven style with loads of floral and tropical flavors. Ripe, but dry and with great acidity. A beautiful wine and a great first attempt at white wine. (Mike Jordan, K&L Domestic wine buyer)
