Tasting:

    Chilled before opening. Clear, oat straw color. Aromas of baked apples, melon, apricot and Mock Orange (Philadelphus coronarius) blossoms. Smooth, tart, slightly creamy, medium body and 150-grit texture. Crisp apple and apricot flavors entangled with a robust mineral character. Fresh acidity that gives the wine excitement and a long dry flavorful mineral finish that has a nutty upturn at the very end. Mellow, easy drinking, refreshing, yet quite vivacious. CLASSIC Quality wine at a Bargain price.
