Professional Wine Reviews for Bedell Taste White 2016

Rated 88 by Wine Advocate
The 2016 Taste White is an unoaked blend of 65% Albarino and 15% Chardonnay, with rest divided between Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier. The Chardonnay (planted in 1981) and Viognier (planted in 1994) were sourced from mature vines, the others from six-year-old vines. It comes at 11.2% alcohol. Despite that low alcohol level, this performs relatively well in terms of substance. It never seems too thin, not that it couldn’t use a bit more concentration. As with the Sauvignon Blanc this issue, it is harmonious and impeccably balanced. The flavor profile, however, is very different, this finishing with a brighter and livelier feel laced with a touch of pear and peach. It also has a certain transparency that is very appealing. It could use a little more energy, yet it is overall a fine experience. Drink this on the younger side for best results..Mark Squires, October/2017

Winery Bedell

Region: New York

New York state has a relatively long history of wine-making and vineyard cultivation, with vineyards in the region dating back to the Dutch settlements of the 17th century. As such, the region has slowly discovered the unique qualities of their terroir, and has developed a distinctive set of grape varietals which have gone on to represent the state and make their wines both unique and highly regarded. New York state has four key wine producing areas – Lake Erie AVA, Finger Lakes AVA, Hudson River and Long Island, each making the most of their relatively cool climate and characterful terroirs. The strong blend of both traditional and contemporary wine making methods found in this region has led to New York state being responsible for many of the finest and most interesting wines to come out of the United States.

Country: United States

Whilst there are several strains of native grape varietals in the United States, it was the introduction of the European species which prompted the country to begin producing wines on a large scale. Over the past few centuries, experimentation and cross-breeding has produced great successes in regards to the quality and suitability of the fruit grown in states such as California, Oregon, Washington and New York, and the past few decades have seen New World wines from the United States reach much higher standards. Arguably the finest United States wines have always come out of California, where the climate and terrroir is most suitable for fine wine production. The masterful blending of classic grape varietals such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, amongst others including Syrah and Chardonnay, have had world beating results in recent years, prompting many to suggest that there has never been a better time for buying and drinking United States wines.
