2015 Allamand Cuvée Saint Jeannet

image

75% Saint Jeannet, 25% Chardonnay. Saint Jeannet has its origins in France but there are a few plantings of it in Argentina. Petrol, dirty hay, sea salt, lemon and lime pith on the oily, funky nose. Scents transition to the waxy/oily palate with lemons, strong minerals and lime pith flavors dominating. Zippy acids carry the lime pith and minerals through the dry, mouthwatering finish. A substantial wine for its humble $15 price. Florida got 50 cases of this wine. I bought 8.
