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

For over four hundred years, New York state has been consistently producing many of the United States finest wines, making the most of the oceanic climate and cool winds which blow over the many vineyards which surround the city. Indeed, certain wineries within the state boast an impressive heritage, with more than one dating back to the 18th century. The state itself has four key wine regions - Lake Erie AVA, Finger Lakes AVA, Hudson River and Long Island, and also features hundreds of smallholdings producing wines of a unique character made using more traditional methods. A wide variety of fine grape varietals are grown across the state, from esteemed old world grapes such as Riesling and Pinot Noir, to an expansive array of New World hybrid grapes which make the wines of this region so unique.

Country: United States

For three hundred years now, the United States has been leading the New World in wine production, both in regards to quantity and quality. Wine is actually produced in all fifty states across the country, with California leading the way by an enormous margin. Indeed, as much as eighty-nine percent of all wines to come out of the United States are produced in California, where the fertile soils and sloping mountain sides, coupled with the long, hot summers provide ideal conditions for producing high quality, European style red, white and rosé wines. With over a million acres of the country under vine, the United States sits comfortably as the fourth largest wine producer in the world, where imported grape varietals from all over the Old World are processed using a successful blend of traditional and contemporary techniques.
