Boskydel Leelanau Peninsula Vignoles, 2009

Leelanau wines from Bernie Rink at Boskydel are for savoring--buy a case and follow the wine's evolution over three or four years. This 2009, from a weak vintage, is coming along nicely. I was assured it will last at least a decade.

Medium yellow, bright./ Lemon, pineapple, a hint of flowers/ Lemon acidity. Has the full body of Semillon or Chardonnay but the zest of a Sauvignon Blanc. Better than many white Bordeaux. Oak is unobtrusive if present at all. A very enjoyable dinner wine.
