Tasting:

    Chilled before drinking. Clear, light oat straw color. Aromas of citrus, green apple, peach and fresh hay (Hay that was cut three dry, sunny days earlier than raked into windrows…this is about the “freshest” hay smell ever!!!) Plush and sensuous silky smooth mouth-feel, just a touch creamy, refined, medium body and a 400-grit texture. A luscious medley of apple, lemon and juicy Bartlett pear flavors. Crisp acidity and a long lemony finish that ends with a delicious, but slight mineral taste. This was a WOW, WOW, WOW white wine!!! After the first sip Vicky said “If there really is a nectar of the Gods, we just found it.” It lifted our simple dinner to memorable status and was simply divine sipping without food after the dinner. This was an OUTSTANDING Southern Rhone white blend and an “all-time” great value. Put this wine on your “Must Have” shopping list!!!
