2016 White Blend
Markus Wine Co.
What we love
Calling all wine enthusiast! This dry white wine is perhaps winemaker Markus Niggli’s most interesting wine in his profolio. The 2016 “Nimmo” is a highly unique, barrel fermented blend of Kerner, Gewürztraminer, Riesling and Bacchus. Extremely fresh and mineral-driven, with notes of plantation iced tea, vanilla, and citrus peel. The interplay of new oak and lees stirring gives this wine a smooth texture. Perfect as an aperitif or paired with seafood, pasta and chicken.
About this Wine
Want something new for your palate? This is it.
Hailing from the Lodi AVA and sourced from two vineyards, this fascinating blend is a chameleon. Every time you sniff and taste, different notes appear. Even Master Sommeliers are humbled by this wine as it’s so difficult to describe.
This youngster will age gracefully for years, and will no doubt develop more complexity with time. Pro tip: pick up several bottles and drink one every six months.
Drink now through 2025.
