2016 Clendenen "Borgo Buon Natale - Bien Nacido Vineyard" Santa Maria Valley Tocai Friulano

SKU #1491199 91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2016 Tocai Friulano is pliant, racy and inviting, with lovely citrus peel and orchard fruit character. This is an especially succulent style and yet the thickness of the skins is evident in the wine's structural feel. (AG) Inner quote mark (9/2018)

K&L Notes

Winemaker's Notes: "Elegant and complex. A crisp, dry, floral white with aromas of green almond, honey and honey suckle, and flavors of apple and pear. Never had it before? Try it. You won't be disappointed! Ideal with shellfish and sole meuniere. The Tocai Fruilano, an Italian white varietal, was planted in 1994 on the Bien Nacido Vineyard property, very close to our production facility. In lesser grape growing areas this variety will set a large crop with little flavor, but in the cool Santa Maria Valley, the crop is small and intense and more importantly, the flavors and aromatics true to the variety. Tocai Fruilano is a floral wine with aromas of, green almond, honey and honey suckle and flavors of apple and pear. Traditional winemaking techniques give our Tocai added texture. Drink this wine as a starter for any meal or with lighter fare such as quiche or crab salad."
