Torbreck, Woodcutter's Semillon, 2009, Barossa Valley, Australia

The Woodcutter's is light slightly dehydrated pee colored in the glass.  It's is a bomb of aromatics in the glass with banana, dandelion, sea water, candle wax, and lemon (turning to lime on day 2).  The bold flavor profile is dominated by bright original fruit flavors of tangelo, dried apricots, and Aranciata soda with nutty overtones.  As the wine warmed, the fruits tended to blend into more of a white grape juice blend and reminded me of the "t-bone steak cheese egg and welches grape" awkward lyric from "Big Poppa."  Like the greatest rapper of all time, this wine is full-bodied and in your face.  It also has a lovely milky mouth feel that put it head and shoulders above all the other sucker mc white wine summer sippers.  

see pee colored!  also keeping in classy in a dixie cup!
