86 is a fairly high score for me, for a white wine, so take that as you will. This was a nice, crisp, bone dry wine. Very pale in color and very clean tasting (no bitterness or off-flavors that I always tend to pick-up on in white wines. I got slight more mineral then fruit, but that is probably just my pallet adjusting to the dryness. Little bit of tropical fruit, but I got more of a green apple from it. Good wine, definitely a more enjoyable white, just probably not in the price range that I would spend for a white that doesn't blow me away.
Pale straw in color. Palate is honey and white pear. Picked up some alc heat. Medium acidity. Rounded mouthfeel. Good with shrimp and also golden beets. Minerality on the finish. No perceived fizzy this time (CO2 effect last time?). 1 remaining. Will wait a year.
