With the rebranding complete, Donald Trump and team can begin their new endeavor in the wine business with Trump Winery. Situated in the heart of the Monticello Wine Trail in Charlottesville, Virginia, the previous Kluge Winery has undergone a major transformation since I last visited. Although the winery reopened in late 2011, this was my first opportunity to try the new wines labeled under Trump.
The Trump 2011 Sauvignon Blanc retails for $16.99 and is a blend of 75% Sauvignon Blanc and 25% Semillon.
A lovely nose of Meyer lemon, pineapple and grapefruit. On the palate, tropical fruit undertones with citrus and passion fruit notes. Bright, clean, fresh and zesty. A surprising effort, priced right. Recommend.
