Review: 2018 Flora Springs Soliloquy
Flora Springs’ top-end white wine is this, Soliloquy, a blend that’s composed (this year) of 44% sauvignon blanc, 41% chardonnay, 10% malvasia, and 5% pinot gris. It’s a bold wine, heavy with perfume up front, featuring notes of jasmine, honeysuckle, and cedar chest notes. The palate grows sweeter and fruitier, growing in complexity while tempering what can be a fairly heavy initial rush of fruit-heavy sweetness (think viognier). The finish is long and floral. I like it best with food; solo it can be a bit overwhelming.
