Tasting:

    He said: Served chilled. Crystal clear, pale oat straw color. Fairly strong citrus fruit aromas. Delicious lemon taste with lots of mineral and a unique crispness that continues right through the medium-long finish. The very end of the finish has just a slight upturn of tartness that I found absolutely delicious. The depth and rich taste of this wine made every sip get better and better. It’s both a surprise and a treat…it was so refreshing on a warm afternoon on the patio in sunny-southern-California. I loved it…a two thumbs up Loire Valley wine I recommend as a “Quality Wine at a Bargain Price. Definitely a wine I would buy by the case!!!

    She said: With the first taste I thought this was a delicious Sauvignon Blanc with plenty of flavor and body. Another sip brought the crispness, acidity and unique flavor into focus. Coupled with a creamy white cheddar the wine was absolutely delicious. At $14.00 it was an EXCELLENT buy.
