Tuesday Tasting: Clif Family Whites

2010 Climber Sauvignon Blanc
$14 (Media Sample)

Aroma: citrus, honeydew and tropical fruits
Texture: Medium-bodied, acidic
Taste: Citrusy
Finish: Lingering

Organic and sustainably farmed Sauvignon Blanc ( Mendocino County and Central Coast), blended with Riesling, Muscat and Viognier. Fermented in stainless steel. Better with food.


N/V Chardonnay
$17 (Media Sample)

Aroma: citrus, honeydew
Texture: Lush
Taste: Citrusy, melon, apple
Finish: Lingering

This unoaked Chardonnay was by far my favorite of the Clif Family Winery wines we received. Great to drink on its own or with a variety of foods. Comes in The Climber Pouch, great idea!

  2. I've been wanting to try this for so long!!! Sadly it's not sold in Utah and they can't ship here :( I'm planning a trip out of state to bootleg some back though :) Glad to hear it's good!
