August was a very nice wine tasting month.
I enjoyed the variation of tasting wines at Family Winemakers of California 2019 tasting in San Francisco Dog Patch district at the Midway. I will be writing under a separate article later for that event to give a recap of how this years tasting went.
Opolo Edna Valley Albariño 2018
Nose of Apple, green fig, and oyster shell. Palate of green apple, fennel, and flowers. This wine is a SIP Certified wine.
Opolo Central Coast Viognier 2018
Nose of citrus zest, stone fruit and flowers. Palate of tropical fruit, flower and beeswax. This wine is a SIP Certified wine.
Fiddlehead Cellars Sta. Rita Hills Grüner Veltliner 2017
An unexpected variety from Sta Rita Hills is a welcomed wine for my tasting table. This is s SIP Certified wine.
This wine presents with a nose that highlights citrus peel, beeswax and oyster shell. The palate is a mix of citrus zest and pulp, beeswax crushed oyster shell and flowers.
Until September – I hope you had an equally great wine tasting month of August.
