synthetic cork. PnP served non-blind over the following hour. Consistent with prior bottles, a solid table/aperitif wine. Good/avg typicity, lower acids than I prefer. Tangerine, sea spray, peach skin, crushed rocks. Good, not great. 12,5% abv, thru 2014
Consistently enjoyable. Red and green apples tossed with equal parts mineral, saline and light tropical. Medium bodied, avg acidity, avg finish. Solid food wine, and went especially well with Pineapple and Ham pizza generously splashed with Tabasco sauce. Yum. 12,5% abv, thru 2014
Apple aromas, maybe slightly tropical too, a touch of cream/lees. Tart fruit palate. Shed loads of fruit. Rich and unctuous, almost marmalade-like but without the sugar. Apples and citrus peel. Definitely works well at $10 a pop.
PnP (synthetic cork, merde!) served non-blind over 2 nights, with both nights showing equally well. Pale toward light straw, with aromas of green apple, sea spray, oyster shell, ripe apricot. Crisp and puckering on the light-med body, with avg-avg plus complexity, flavors of lemon-lime, almond oil, apples and minerals; finishes cleanly. Impressive showing on night #2 as I had expected some type of decline, but it remained rock solid. 12,5% abv, drink thru 2014
First from a case. My notes are consistent with Johann's. A good-very good bottle of sub $15 white. With prices as they are these days, I'm happy to find a well-made daily drinker that has a good sense of place, grape and vintage. recommended, 12,5% abv, drink thru 2014. I'll give my next one 20-30 minutes in a decanter.
Green grassy yellowish color. The nose almost smellis like Sauvignon Blanc. Very grassy and bright with lemon skin and some stoney mineral notes. Palate is richer than I would haev expected. Good acid punch on the end.
