The 2010 Murrieta’s Well “The Whip” is a blend of 31% Sauvignon Blanc, 27% Viognier, 15% Semillon, 11% Pinot Blanc, 8% Orange Muscat and 8% Muscat Canelli. Quite a blend but they did an excellent job. You get the burnt orange nose of the Muscat without the sweetness in the mouth. The flavor is complex, oranges, a hint of grassiness, spicy oak and a hint of floral. Great acidity and a moderate length finish. At $20 I highly recommend you try this wine.
