tasted (2006 vintage, 750ml bottle) : May 30, 2008 , from a member
85 points "Color: pale; Nose: fragrant; Aromas: buttery, nutty, herbal, citrus fruit, tropical fruit; Acidity: crisp; Sweetness: dry; Body: medium-bodied; Finish: medium; Overall: pleasant; very light and pale in color. On the nose grapefruit, green apples, with a hint of sweet herbs. On the initial taste, buttery on the palate with grapefruit. As the night went on, the wine really developed more flavors then any other wine I have ever had. I tasted green apples, apricots and a little vanilla through the evening. The wine also seemed slightly effervescent. This was a very dry and acidic wine of medium body along with a medium finish. I could see some being turned off by the acid level of this wine. For me it really paired well with grilled chicken and salad. Nice change from Chardonnay or Pinot Grigio, would buy again. "
