    He said: Served chilled. Crystal clear with only the slightest hint of yellow-green color. VERY strong ripe apple and citrus aromas. Very fresh, crisp, citrus taste with a lively mouth-feel. The finish carries the citrus flavors and ends with a slight tartness. Easy drinking and WONDERFUL sipping wine and at $8.75 it’s a real bargain.

    She said: What a great sipping wine and at a great price! Light and refreshing this wine is delightful. With cheese and crackers it is even better. Full of fruit flavors, it has a light body and clean crisp taste that lasts into the medium long finish. A wonderful bargain wine at $8.75.
