This is a very light color wine, and the cork was wet all the way to the end, but wine was fine. We had this wine with shrimp, several different cheeses, bread and fruit. Nose was a little funky, dry and floral. Taste is light, dry and very good with the food, the food brought out the complexity. Finish is simple and long, this wine is drinking well, if you still have one enjoy it
