Has an attractive straw-greenish yellow color, with ripe lemon nuances. Bright and slightly sparkling. Stands out for its special intensity and elegance, its aroma reminiscent of damp, dewy fresh herbs with a perfume of semi-ripe apples. A fine sparkling sensation on the palate, with a complexity of tastes denoting the freshness of vegetation in the valley and the essence of the varietal. Persistent, full-bodied and tasty...a classic.
I enjoyed this rather a lot. In particular, it was refreshing to encounter a white wine that was so unashamedly unoaked and left all the flavor to the grapes. It starts off with a nice golden pour and enough body to hold up. The first mouth is very crisp and bright, with a strong taste of tart apples and a bit of citrus. The acidity keeps it all lively and the finish is a final burst of fruit before it starts to fade. It is pleasantly dry and the entire experience was very positive. I'd give this a solid 90, and would readily recommend it if you're getting tired of vanilla, smoke, and woody flavors. It's also a very good wine to experience the huge difference oak exposure can have on a wine (provided you have a good oaked white to compare with). I had this with a simple alfredo and it worked quite well; the acidity gives it enough bite to cut through almost any cream or cheese dish.
Fruity & Smooth
