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 wine history which stretches back to the mid-17th century, when Dutch settlers first began cultivating grape vines in the Hudson Valley. Since then, the wine industry of New York has grown from strength to strength, mixing the old with the new as wineries continue to experiment with modern techniques alongside their traditional heritage. Indeed, certain wineries in New York state hold a claim to being amongst the oldest and most well established in the New World, with at least one dating back over three hundred and fifty years. New York state is responsible for a relatively small range of grape varietals, due to its cooler, damper climate, but many varietals such as Riesling and Seyval Blanc thrive in such conditions and produce wines a of singular quality.

Country: United States

The first European settlers to consider growing grapevines in the United States must have been delighted when they discovered the now famous wine regions within California, Oregon and elsewhere. Not even in the Old World are there such fertile valleys, made ideal for vine cultivation by the blazing sunshine, long, hot summers and oceanic breezes. As such, it comes as little surprise that today more than eighty-nine percent of United States wines are grown in the valleys and on the mountainsides of California, where arguably some of the finest produce in the world is found. However, American wine does not begin and end with California, and due to the vast size of the country and the incredible range of terrains and climates found within the United States, there is probably no other country on earth which produces such a massive diversity of wines. From ice wines in the northern states, to sparkling wines, aromatized wines, fortified wines, reds, whites, rosés and more, the United States has endless surprises in store for lovers of New World wines.
