Tasting:

    Chilled before drinking. Clear, light wheat straw color. Fresh lemon, lime, pear and apple aromas with a background of wet grass and blooming hydrangeas. Smooth, green, dry, light body…but with real substance and a 200-grit texture. Robust lemon and lime flavors with a mineral backbone that was like drinking from a limestone spring. Gobs of edgy acidity and a medium length tart mineral tasting finish. A VERY clean, green and lean white blend with hulking fresh fruit flavors. Great with the tuna dreams and salad, but equally delicious sipping after the dinner. A special wine from start to finish…and the real proof of the pudding, this is our second bottle and we have already been to the store and bought more!!! It is a noteworthy fresh white wine that’s a FANTASTIC value.
