In this review plus video of Apothic White wine, we’ll cover price, alcohol content, taste and more of this popular white wine.
Apothic White is bottled by Apothic Wines and comes from Modesto, California. For this review, I tasted the 2012 vintage.
This wine is a blend of three different varietals. They include Riesling, Chardonnay and Pinot Grigio.
The winemaker is Debbie Juergenson. She specifically “looks for a unique blend of grapes to create intense aromas and bold flavors.”
This review is one of the many Apothic Wines I’ve reviewed here on Honest Wine Reviews.

Apothic White Wine Tasting
In the glass, this wine is light straw in color. It also has a subtle copper shimmer to it. It didn’t appear very leggy.
The wine’s aroma was noticeable from afar. It’s complex and includes notes of sweet orange and citrus. There was also a muted hint of clove or some other dark spice in the background.
The flavors in Apothic White included some sweet citrus upon first sip. But, shortly after that, the sweet flavors dissipated and the more subtle characteristics of the Chardonnay and Pinot Grigio came through. There was also a tiny hint of vanilla in there.
The wine had a silky mouthfeel and a long finish.
Overall, I thought this was a great wine. Like the other Apothic wines, the taste of this wine is unique. The blend of the three varietals was very interesting. You can pick out each grape, but when you “step back” you can sense how each one compliments the other.
If you like a silky white wine with a bit of front end sweetness, give this wine a try. Apothic White price $9.99.
