Apothic White: Seductive, Mysterious and Sexy
I missed the epic Apothic Wine launch party but Dunn PR was kind enough to send me a bottle of Apothic White to try. We served the wine during Thanksgiving dinner; the smooth textures and fruity taste went perfectly with our scalloped potatoes.
I even love the bottle the wine comes in, reminiscent of seductive goth culture and secret underground lairs. The name, Apothic was inspired by the “Apotheca,” described on the bottle label as a mysterious place where wine was blended and stored in 13th century Europe. Apothic White is a blend of three of my favourites: Chardonnay, Riesling and Moscato. The result is a very crisp and tropical tasting wine, with hints of honey but also sweet undertones of nectarine, peach and apricot.
Just like a slow and sexy seduction, Apothic White kind of takes you for a surprise after the first few sips. At first, I was thinking that this would be easy drinking, the wine is smooth and honey flavoured upon the first sip. Then after a little while, the subtle spices tickled my tongue and the inside of my cheeks. And when I got to the bottom of my first glass, the bold tropical flavours had taken over and I could taste the sweet, tangy finish as much as I could taste our rich pumpkin dessert after dinner.
Apothic White comes from California and will only be available in select release markets. Check their website for more details: http://www.apothic.com/
