2016 Amycas

$20.00/Bottle

Amycas is a delightful, crisp and floral blend of Pinot Blanc, Riesling, Pinot Gris, Gewurztraminer and Muscat with good acidity and lovely aromatics.

In Greek mythology, Amycas was the son of Poseidon. A boxer, King of the Bebryces, and a one-time Trojan, he covered a lot of territory over the course of his short life. His bold and wandering nature fits with our Amycas White Table Wine blend.

Amycas is a delightful, crisp and floral blend of Pinot Blanc, Riesling, Pinot Gris, Gewurztraminer and Muscat with good acidity and lovely aromatics. It is inspired by the Edelzwicker (edel = noble, zwicker = blend) wines found in Alsace, and like its French cousins is very pleasureable, with or without food.

Chris Blanchard, MS

Smells like opening up an orange, with intense floral notes of honeysuckle and jasmine. Beautiful, bright citrus; lemon, tangerine, and nectarine. You can really smell the exotic tropical fruit aromas of passionfruit, papaya and lychee, brought to you from the Muscat and Gewurtztraminer, which also add a ginger like spice high note, like cinnamon sprinkled on apple sauce. Youthful and lively on the palate. An elegant blend where all components compliment each other creating a perfectly balanced final bottle of wine. Rich and juicy, amazing tension of sweet and sour, texturally plump, yet light on its feet with bouncy acidity. Bravo on a fantastic and hard to achieve cuvee. Drink this with a variety of Asian foods.

Sweet & sour pork, crispy or steamed spring rolls, red curry chicken, pad thai, etc. The perception of sweetness, which is actually aromatics, would be a perfect compliment to exotic spices.
