Community Tasting Notes (5) Avg Score: 88 points

  • Wow, my previous bottle must have been a bad one. This is just stunning. A beaut. profusely floral, lemony aromatics. In the mouth it’s kicking ass with an electric spine of acid, citrus-infused honey, white flowers, pineapple, lots of complexity, waxy texture, and just pops in the mouth. Going to change my previous rating from 85 to flawed.

  • Light straw color. Pretty nose, some floral notes, citrus, a bit of honey. I was surprised by the palate, having read the previous notes. Lots of acidity, citrus, primarily lemon notes, good mouthfeel. Med/long finish. Not a tremendous amount of complexity, but a nice summer quaffer.

  • Rather disappointed in this. Perhaps over the hill. Exotic perfume of candles, flowers and stone fruit was promising, but in the mouth it was tired and flabby. Insufficient acid, muddled fruits and flowers, and a hollow mid-palate, despite a nice mouthfeel. Reminds me of a CdR blanc in a warm year.

  • Just not much taste, sweet smell and fine taste, but little taste

  • Aromas of tree fruit, honey, hint of tea and straw. On the palate, citrus flavors are distinct with a bit of honey and melon. Positives: a dry, food-friendly wine even though predominant grapes of Muscat Canelli and Arneis often yield sweetness. Negative: At $25 plus tax and shipping, QPR substantially below average. A nice alternative to Chardonnay, but there are many options well below $15 to substitute. Drink now.
