Tasting:

    He said: Clear or almost no color. Very light citrus and floral bouquet. Light citrus (lemon) taste with a slight dry/high acidity finish (the best part of this wine). It’s full bodied, soft texture and delicious. Because it was not a strong flavored with it let the flavors of the salad come through. It was a perfect paring with the strong flavors of the salad. It improved as the wine warmed up.

    She said: Light yellow color, mild citrus bouquet and flavor; smooth, full bodied with slightly acid finish. Delicious with the salad , pleasant as sipping wine. Good value but not a bargain.
