Rating:JD100/RP99
JD100 - "Starting with the white, the 2019 Distenta I White is pure perfection, and there's not a finer white coming out of California today. Coming from a final blend of 41% Roussanne, 26% Chardonnay, 14% Petit Manseng, 12% Viognier, and the rest Gelber Muskateller, it spent 23 months in 64% new French oak. It offers a heavenly bouquet of caramelized oranges, toasted bread, honeyed citrus, and almond paste. This carries to a full-bodied, deep, concentrated white with incredible intensity and depth, yet it's never heavy or overbearing and is flawlessly balanced. These have a great track record of aging brilliantly, but you can't go wrong drinking them in their youth, either. I know Krankl's reds get all the attention, but he continues to produce brilliant, brilliant dry whites. There were 824 cases produced." JD Aug 2022
Sine Qua Non, Distenta I White, California
I never cease to be amazed at the quality consistently coming from this address. In addition, Krankl somehow manages to deliver brilliance with just about any variety out there, you can expect a truly riveting wine, as well as a wine with singular characteristics. And these latest releases from Sine Qua Non are great wines.
