Tasting Notes
If you love food, this juicy well-rounded Auxerrois is your soul mate. Experience this rare find with fresh seasonal cuisine.
90 - John Schreiner - March 2020 - 40 Knots Auxerrois 2018 ($24.90 for 163 cases). Auxerrois is an Alsace white variety that was embraced by the early estate wineries, but less so by consumers – for no good reason that I can discern. Layne takes the variety seriously: this wine was fermented in French oak and aged in barrel and on the lees for seven months. The wine has a slight blush. Oak notes are barely perceptible. The wine has aromas and flavours of apple and cantaloupe. It also had good weight on the palate, with a dry finish. 90
Winemaker Notes
Juicy, balanced, big hit of acidity mid palate. Medium body. Loves Food. Alsation style of subtle pineapple, lemon, lime and pear. May take on Riesling flavors in time, of canned pineapple, green apple, tobacco and sage, possibly petrol. Rich and oily.
92 cases - Exclusive small batch

As a wine club member of 40 Knots, we have enjoyed each bottle delivered to us, however, on a recent trip to France, we gained an even bigger appreciation for the 40 Knots wines. 40 Knot's Auxerrois being one of our favorites, we wanted to taste the Auxerrois made in Strasbourg and compare. I have to say, that by the second bottle, we knew we were in good company with 40 Knot's Auxerrois. 40 Knot's Auxerrois has so much more structure and is much more complex than any we tasted in France. In my opinion, no need to import when you have some of the best wines right here on Vancouver Island.
