We thought Waugh Red Junior deserved a sibling. Introducing White Junior. Red Junior is a blend of all the red varietals we grow and source, so White Junior is all 3 of the white varietals, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Riesling.
Not to be taken too seriously, White Junior is the ultimate porch pounder! Enjoy the summer sun while sipping on this delicious white blend.
The Chardonnay delivers the weight and complexity, Sauvignon Blanc adds citrus and a crisp mouth- watering acidity, and the Riesling delivers floral qualities and a lush texture.
A beautiful light color, this wine opens with the enticing scent of apricot, pear and spearmint, as well as bright notes of orange and lemon meringue pie. The entry on the palate has a subtle sweetness immediately balanced by a natural acidity and a pop of freshness. The finish is long, with distinctive hints of each varietal creating a final, lingering impression.
