Tasting:

    He said: Served chilled. Very light oat straw color. Delicious pear aromas. Creamy ripe Bartlett pear and honeydew melon taste with a mid-palate tartness and quite short creamy fruit finish. I’m looking for some crispness and there is absolutely none. It’s delicious creamy pear and not much else…not complex nor as full bodied as a good oaked chardonnay. Good with the scallops but falls flat sipping after the meal. Would I buy it again, probably because it packs a lot of smooth creamy flavor into one bottle…it’s good, but clearly not memorable!!!

    She said: A great big yum for this one; love it! Starting with a pear scented aroma it presents a smooth creamy taste to the palate with layers of flavors. The medium long finish ends with a tad of bitterness. An excellent choice for scallops but not a bargain.
