Edmund St. John "Heart of Gold" Sierra Foothills 2020
"As ever, the color is a pale yellow, with moderate green highlights. Nose is typically blossomy, and very fresh, with undertones of ginger, and a firm mineral streak. There are lovely suggestions, as well, of apple and Anjou pear.
On the palate the wine is quite energetic, and fresh, light and distinct; the Grenache Blanc adds a bit of fat to flesh out the Vermentino’s muscle and bone. Beautiful fruit-tones, gingery spice, and a long, mouth-watering finish, drive the hard-to-resist impulse for another mouthful. Textbook Heart Of Gold!"
