A really nice, balanced and refreshing unoaked white from an arid, hot region more known for its gutsy reds.
Light, bright, brassy-gold.
Ripe, deep, tropical fruit-laden nose, with pineapple, banana, and notes of peach and lychee nuts. Dry and refreshing, with lots of pear fruit in the mouth, and a light, clean, stony minerality. Squeeze of lime at the end. Surprisingly well balanced, flavorful, and a great accompaniment to New Orleans "Barbequed Shrimp" (recipe). 88.
Was $11 and change at Spec's on Smith, making it an excellent buy. Imported by Weygandt-Metzler.
