The Ojai Vineyard-
Awesome Wines Since 1983
This 2022 bottling is a flashy and outward wine, full of sunny character and loudly aromatic. The nose gives a wash of citrus blossoms, passionfruit, and crunchy Asian pear, along with McGinley’s typical gravelly minerality. Initially, the textures are rounded and succulent, like juicy stone fruits, and then the wine steps on the gas with a zesty blast of citrus, mint, and tingly minerality.
It’s an invigorating aperitif, but is also super food-friendly; it complements the saltiness of fresh oysters or urchin, the tartness of goat cheese or labneh, and the direct earthiness of any fresh salad or humbly prepared vegetables.
