Taste profile from the winemaker: "The long and clean finish makes this wine a great food companion. It is dry and balanced wine that pairs well with pasta with creamy sauces, grilled fish and soft cheeses."

ABC Wines review: This vintage white has aromas of citrus and herbs on pouring. Semi-dry, the overall taste is rather flat though not unpleasant. Mineral notes add a bit of crispness. The finish is smooth and increasingly dry. This wine would pair better with chicken dishes than fish. At $6 (on sale), it represents a terrific value. Our score: Average.
