Abe Schoener is a philosophy professor turned cult wine hero, whose approach to winemaking is as the eternal student, constantly experimenting, purely to witness the result. Is it good? Is it bad? That's not what concerns him. In fact, he'd much rather you hate his experiment than think it's "okay." Love it or hate it, but please don't shrug!
Luckily for us, his "La Severita di Bruto" Sauvignon Blanc from Scholium Project falls squarely in the ‘love it’ category. It lures you in with a sense of modesty and simplicity, not revealing its complexity and sophistication until long after you've committed to the glass! With enticing aromas of lemon and almond, an initially creamy texture that leads the way to an exhilarating nervous energy, and finally, to a lingering lemony zing on the finish, it's a charmer that seems to be in on our little joke here. “To hell with tradition,” it seems to be saying, “I’m about to knock your socks off!”
