Edi Simcic, Triton Lex
(TREE-tone leks)

 

Tasting Notes: The Simcic family has owned their estate for over 100 years. Winemaker Aleks Simcic recognized the pedigree and potential of the family vineyard, and has worked to bring the estate to brand new heights. Triton Lex is the estate’s top white cuvee, a classic blend of French-origin varietals that absolutely sing with brightness, acidity, and polish from some of the the best soils in Europe. Fermented and aged in French barrique, this wine deftly avoids any “oakiness,” and instead exhibits an effortless lushness, supported by the incredible quality fruit.
