I didn't realize how long this had been on the store shelf when I bought it last summer. When I saw that it was bottled with a synthetic cork I figured it was probably too late. On pouring, the colour definitely looked oxidized and it was clearly past its prime.
We tried this semi-dry white blend at the chateau on a lovely, pleasant mid-August Saturday, late-morning. We were one of the first ones to come-into the tasting room that day. So we got lots of attention! I was impressed by this wine. So much so that I bought a bottle. It has Gewürztraminer, Pinot Grigio, Pinot Blanc, and Muscat. I thought that having a glass of this before supper would be an excellent way to start an evening. If I liked, I could continue to drink it during dinner, so long as I wasn't having duck or steak. Good (82.5).
