This year Millbrook made two Tocai’s one steel fermented and the other went into oak puncheons.  More on the oak puncheons later when we review that wine.  For now this is about the 2011 Proprietor’s Special Reserve Tocai you have become accustomed to from Millbrook.

A nice crisp wine with aromas of pear and red apple.  Minerality fills the palate with lemon and grapefruit and hints of pear.  There is a little tartness to the finish along with a hint of spice.

Priced at $20, this wine would go will with your romantic summer picnic.
