Mission Codename Easy Decision
Addison Rex, former GM of Deerfield Ranch Winery, returns with another all-new wine. Our Operatives raved about the TORN red blend, and this companion white blend features two underrated varietals Chenin Blanc and Riesling. We’re bringing it to you at an unbeatable price for its inaugural release.
In your glass, you’ll find a wine of excellent clarity with a light golden hue tinged with peridot. Right up front, the nose has a huge floral bouquet, arresting the senses with honeysuckle and gardenia. The fruit is there too with predominantly stone fruit motifs of white nectarine and apricots, with a splash of apple. The palate is delightful with flavors of peach, honeysuckle, elderflower with loquat, D’anjou pear, and fresh persimmon. The mouthfeel is full and lush, with a round mouthfeel provided by the Chenin Blanc to beautifully support the delicious fruit and floral character of the Riesling. Trust us, you will not be lead astray with grilled shrimp shish kabobs brushed with garlic and butter.
Jurassic Wines is Addison’s new venture since departing his family business, where he spent years under Robert Rex’s tutelage. TORN is one of the labels under that banner. We love the idea behind the brand, of highlighting two varietal blends - This wine is a sublime example of the interesting things that can happen when worlds collide.
