Turkish Wine of the Week - Suvla Kabatepe White 2013

This week we're talking about Suvla's Kabatepe 2013 white. Sadly, they're not producing any more of this so what is in stock is what is left.

Like the red, the white is a super blend of: Kinali Yapinkcak 47%, Chardonnay 17%, Sauvignon Blanc 15%, Semillon 10%, and Roussanne Marsanne 11%.

Right out of the bottle it was interesting with its bright straw yellow color and green hues. The nose was dry and little floral. I was really surprised by the flavor which was sweeter than I expected given the dryness of the nose. I don't mean sweet like a muscat sweet, of course, more like there was just a hint of honey. Crisp, slightly acidic, and with flavors of what I think was green apple, the Kabatepe white is delightful. Such a pity there's only a limited supply-so go get yours now!
