2018 La Donella

2018 La Donella
2018 La Donella

A lovely pale gold color, the 2018 La Donella has a delicate, complex nose of pear, granny smith apple, lemon blossom, straw, sage and eucalyptus. The light brightness of the nose is delightful but is also a bit of a decoy, for the wine itself is intense and full-bodied. The first thing you'll notice is sweetness... or is it? The wine presents as off-dry, but on the finish there is only the merest whisper of residual sugar; most of the sweetness up front is actually perception of fruitiness. The central flavor is Asian pear, but with a wow factor that the mild tree fruit simply cannot muster.  It's  Asian pear with the acidity of a Granny Smith apple and the intensity turned up to 11. As always there is the characteristic straw-sage note that is always present in this fruit from Artz Vineyard. A great wine for summer sipping with or without food;  the moderate sweetness makes La Donella a killer pairing for fruit with cheese, and this is absolutely your go-to bottle for Thai and some Chinese food, as well as salty sausages and vegetables off the grill. You will probably find the bottle empty sooner than you expected, so best to have several on hand.
