    January 26, 2013 - Giant Wine Sale & Tasting Cellar on Greene 1/26/2013 (Cellar on Greene, Columbia, SC): When I first tasted this wine, I was unaware it was produced in California. I thought it was somewhat light in viscosity, but tasty. When I realized it was a New World wine, and my first taste of this varietal outside of Spain, I got pretty excited. Though not a spectacular wine, there is lots to admire. The nose has a nice combination of green garden vegetative aromas, with spicy, tangy, citrus, especially tangerine. The fruit across the palate is fairly light and dry in style, citrus, melon and guava. Nicely balanced with moderate yet refreshing acidity. Fairly short finish.

    August 29, 2012 - Melon flavors with a little lemon lime. Has some acidity, but not as much as the Spanish versions. Crisp finish.

    June 5, 2012 - Pale gold color. Tart green apples, but not too tart. Generally an easy drinking white that should be served chilled, but not cold.

    February 26, 2012 - Full, floral nose, with tart green apple, and some citrus fruits. On the palate, spicy, crisp grapefruit, limes, a tad waxy. Lingering finish, nice acidity. Very refreshing. Would probably feature best as an aperitif, absent food.
