Matthiason, “Tendu”, Clarksburg, Cortese, 2019
100% Cortese, more often found in the cheap and cheerful whites of Piedmont, particularly Gavi! This white originates from the Lost Slough vineyard, located on the Sacramento River Delta – a site that benefits from cool breezes and good diurnal temperature variation, meaning the grapes retain excellent freshness.
Fresh and fruity, but with a pleasant, deceptive oomph to the palate – orange peel, soft spice and stone fruits – fuzzy apricots and peaches with a hint of texture. Like all of Steve’s wines, it overdelivers, and is a delightful expression of this Italian grape.
