Tasting:

    Chilled before drinking. Crystal clear with a tint of wheat straw color. Indistinctive dried hay aroma with whiffs of lemon. Smooth, the dry side of off-dry and slightly creamy mouthfeel with a strong medium body and 400-grit texture. Lean lemony citrus and honeydew melon flavors that had just a tad of spiciness, VERY plentiful zippy acidity and a medium length lemon and soft mineral finish. Although it had lots of body it was quite refreshing. Excellent paired with the Saigon tacos and equally good sipping with an Italian Hazelnut Torrone after the dinner. This was an easy drinking and flavorful Quality wine at a Bargain price. We enjoyed it very much and both commented that it had great pairing potential and was way under valued.
