Our Oregon wine in the Irish Time
This week, we celebrate the different, with four unusual, slightly eclectic wines that offer something extra. Sokol Blosser Evolution, Oregon NV (labelled 14th edition), 12.5% It is not every day you come across wines from Oregon in this country, although there are plenty of good wines being made. Less often too you find a wine made from nine grape varieties, including Muller-Thürgau, Gewüztraminer, Chardonnay, Sylvaner, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris and several others. This winery was one of the first to set up in Oregon, and is now fully organic. The Evolution is a lively crisp white with intriguing subtle melon and nectarine fruits; a very satisfying wine that is out of the ordinary.
