Rising Stars—Fragrant Whites and Organic Wines
Lecture no. 3 from the course: The Everyday Guide to Wines of California
Taught by Professor Jennifer Simonetti-Bryan | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Food & Wine Courses
Explore some of California’s most fragrant and exciting new white wine varieties, which yield a variety of aromas and tastes reminiscent of flowers and fruits: a Pinot Gris, a Viognier, and an unoaked Sauvignon Blanc. Then, go beyond tradition (and into somewhat controversial territory) and see how California growers are experimenting with organic wine—wine made from organically farmed grapes without industrial chemicals and without the addition of sulfur during the wine-making process.
