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

White flowers, peaches, honeysuckle and gardenia. Such aromatic and beautiful aromas. Orange and citrus blossom, pear, peach and rose petals.

On the palate the wine is so perfumed, lychee, grapefruit, apricot, potpourri, melon, lemon, spice, sorrel and green herbs. Medium weight with bright acidity and an exotic mid pallet of tropical fruit and spice. A hint of sweet flowers, ripe fruit and pear and peach juice. So beautiful and complex, with a finish of slight bitterness and perfume over a faintly mineral undertone.

Another wonderful pairing with white meats, chicken pork and sausage and sauerkraut. What an interesting pairing with a Reuben sandwich, but probably amazing with a curry or roasted chicken and root vegetables.

And, obviously, it is perfect with Chef Abby’s Spring Pea & Pistachio Aillade with Orange Blossom Whipped Fromage Blanc.
