Community Tasting Note

85 Points

Sunday, May 5, 2013 - winemaker notes say the following: The color is pale straw with golden highlights. The nose finds fresh pear and honeydew melon with flavors of mandarin orange, lemon, kiwi, pear and spice. A round entry on the palate with nice balance between acidity and residual sugar. A clean, refreshing finish.

I ordered a glass at dajio to go with some playoff hockey and an eggplant napolean- was trying for the driest, crispest wine on th e list. was expecting more of a finish from a cool climate white. Not bad- definitely get some pear and green apple and some acidity in the not-so-impressive finish. I keep trying to stray away from Marlborough and I am brought back every time. Nothing compares for me in terms of acidity, food friendliness and overall enjoyability from a white.

Had again in october/ 2013 and it's definitely better than your standard pinot grigio. Just nothing spectacular. Hard to love this wine but also hard to find anything partictularly wrong with it. decent "goes with anything light" sort of bottle.
