2012 White Rex
Simply delicious. Perfect anytime.
Like the Red Rex it has all the best elements of each of its components and what's more, its greater than the sum of its parts. Peach from the Pinot Grigio, crisp apple from the Sauvignon Blanc, that certain Chard-iness everyone secretly loves, and a touch of off-dry from the Riesling. Serve well chilled, preferably wearing a swim suit.
In a blend by Robert Rex, there’s a reason for everything. Here is what he says each varietal in White Rex brings to the table:
Pinot Grigio - White Peaches, Fresh fruit sweetness, Top palate flavors
Sauvignon Blanc - Brightness, Minerality, Side palate flavors, Tropical fruit
Chardonnay - Opens mid-palate flavors, Hint of oak, Depth, length and finish
Riesling - Acidity, Creates refreshing finish, Herbal qualities on the front of palate
The Blend is: Pinot Grigio 58%, Sauvignon Blanc 17%, Riesling 15%, Chardonnay 10%,
Stats - Alcohol: 13.9%, RS: 0.49%, pH at bottling: 3.57
