Big Head Raw Savagnin 2016
A mutation of Gewürztraminer and parent to Chenin Blanc and Sauvignon Blanc. This example has reflections of all these varietals. Slightly floral on the nose, but not nearly as intense as Gewurz. The acidity is much higher, the palate dryer, and a slight green herb tinge that makes me think of Sauvignon Blanc. A well-balanced wine with weight and structure, and a lengthy finish. This should pair nicely with Asian cuisine...dim sum comes to mind. All I can think of are steam buns with pork belly and shredded cabbage.
