Great summer food wine. Paired with grilled chicken and vegetables. This wine is a food wine. By itself, it's an underwhelming Sauvignon Blanc. However, when paried with food, and in this case spicy food, the minerality makes it work like a Riesling, except sweeter. I appreciated the sweetness given that the chicken I was having was spicy. And so will you.
We had this with seafood tapas at a friends house on 5/10/13. It had a fresh, intense and inviting bouquet of pear, apple, citrus, mineral and spice aromas. The palate was rich, fresh and dry with flavors of pear, apple, lime, chalky minerals and spice.
Well balanced and decent flavor and lower acid than I expected. Tasted from a preservation machine at 57 deg F. Round gentle aroma of cooling sea mineral, old tea leaves and flowers in the nose; chewy mineral and old dried leaves, fruit (ctirus), and some spice mid-palate; finishes with a not-strong baked citrus (lemon and mandarin) flavor.
