This wine doesn’t play by the rules
The 90s is coming back and I’m not mad about it. I’m here for the baggy clothes, chokers and punk-rock mindset 🤘🏼
This 2019 Angels With Dirty Faces white blend from Tank winery is the perfect rule breaker wine. This is 95% Sauvignon Blanc, 5% Viognier, and 100% different than what you think it would taste like.
Wine nerds will be fascinated with this one. The Sauvignon Blanc was fermented and aged 12 months in 15% New French Oak, 30% used French oak, and 55% stainless steel with partial Malolactic Fermentation...(!) The Viognier was foot stomped and whole cluster fermented before aging in neutral French Oak for 12 months.
I get tropical fruits like pineapple, banana and mango, with sweet melon and white peach on this one. A little bit of almond and angels food cake on the palate as well. That partial malolactic fermentation really brings something unique to the mouthfeel on this one. I recommend pairing with Cajun food like crawfish étouffée, and I think this goes perfectly with Freeform’s new 90s drama Cruel Summer 👏🏻
What is your favorite trend from the 90s?
