    He said: Chilled before drinking. Clear, almost colorless, just the slightest hint of lemon yellow. Powerful citrus aromas. Acidic, medium body and an intense fresh grassy – citrus taste that ends tart in the long mineral finish. It’s much like a Sauvignon Blanc but fresher. This is a GREAT Jacquere that’s a SUPER value. Light & easy drinking, dry and very refreshing

    She said: Clear, pale yellow color. Lively citrus aroma leads to a mouth full of very delicious flavors that is medium bodied, dry, smooth and acidic. The finish is long and tasty. Delicious with cheese and probably good with a wide variety of foods. This is an outstanding example of a bargain wine that’s excellent and only $10.80 and I would buy it again in a flash.
