    He said: Served chilled. Crystal clear, light straw color. Aromas of apple, citrus and spring floral blossoms. Very fresh, slightly tart (green) apple initial taste; through the mid-palate are ripe apple and pear that goes into a creamy, slightly dry lingering finish. A wonderful blend that is saturated with complexity and tastes of each component. This is an out of the ball park wine. It’s a memorable and refreshing white wine.

    She said: As a blend this wine reflects the strengths of some very good grapes. Nice bouquet of green apple with a tad of citrus, followed by fruity flavors, full body, and a nip of bitterness in the long finish. Almost creamy and smooth, it’s medium dry and offers twists and turns with delicious tastes. It’s a GREAT bargain at $11.00.
