87 Points "Tangy lemon-lime, spicy pear and quince notes are light and refreshing, with a mouthwatering juiciness. Sémillon and Sauvignon Blanc. Drink now." - Wine Spectator
The 2007 Psalms is our first White Meritage offered on Indie Winemakers. The blend consists of 58% Sémillon and 42% Sauvignon Blanc; 52% of the blend was barrel fermented in new Trust Hungarian oak. This extremely tight grained oak adds a spicy high note that lifts the green apple aromatics from the Sémillon and the tropical fruit of the Sauvignon Blanc. This is an age worthy white that has a rich round mid-palate and crisp finish.
Pair with Papaya, Mango and Avacado Salad. .

Our mission is to provide unbiased opinions of the wine being offered. These notes come from up to 10 guests who tasted this wine in a blind tasting format (wine is concealed so their identity is unknown). Why this format? Tasting blind completely throws out any hype associated with a certain winery, style, price point, etc; it forces the taster to accept what is in the glass without any predetermined notions. Our guests utilize Robert Parker's Glossary of Wine Terms for their comments for consistency purposes. In addition, we utilize the wine aroma wheel to enhance one’s ability to describe the complexity of wine flavor. Notes are posted on this wine during the tasting to ensure they accurately reflect the impressions.
