Great wine making achievement. This is drinking even better than the L d’Or right now. Round and finessed with incredible elegance and nimbleness while retaining great acid structure and flavors of cut grass and honey dew melon. Enough weight to stand up nicely to a roast vegetarian fed, air-chilled chicken tonight and likely a winner in anyone’s book. At less than $12, this is one of the greatest buys in white wine in the world in my opinion if you like steely, dry whites.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
