Century Sweet – Biltmore

Our wine tonight is the Century Sweet White Wine from Biltmore Estate Winery.

Blend of Riesling, Gewürztraminer, Muscat Canelli, and Symphony.

Very citrusy nose, lemon, pink grapefruit, mandarin orange, though also presenting complex aromas of minerals and early spring wildflowers.

Flavor notes of green apples, blood oranges, honeydew melons, tangerines, lemons, limes, and finishing much like a banana cream custard.

This wine is less than perfectly balanced, sweetness is overpowering at 2.2% residual sugar.

12.5% ABV

$16 a bottle

The Biltmore Estate Winery is the most visited winery in the world.

May be cheating though as a wine tasting is included with admission to view Biltmore Estate.
