Tasting:

    Chilled before drinking. Clear, dark pumpkin color. Robust ripe apples, honeysuckle in full bloom and lemon aromas. Smooth, tart, medium body and a 200-grit texture. Apple, mineral and nectarine flavors with hints of raisins and tropical fruit. Crisp acidity, but with a almost doughy creaminess and a tart, very dry finish that had a distinct brussels sprouts nuttiness in the aftertaste. It paired well with the Greek chicken; but we make a simple dish of baked scallops in butter, lemon juice, bread crumbs and a little Parmesan cheese that I think would be ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC with this wine!!! It was a substantial white wine that’s both versatile and delicious. In other words we loved it!!!
