It’s been a while since I had anything B&G. I remember B&G was one of the wine Dryfuss was drinking in the movie JAWS!! An off-dry wine on the sweet side, with tropical fruit aromas. On the palate apple and peach, vivid acidity yet with an underlying creaminess. Medium finish that screams for some spicy foods. Good but not my style.

Appropriately balanced for the sugar, but entirely too sweet for my palate. Very drinkable though. Just a shame its as sweet as it is.

A bit sweet but good for dessert.

Very smooth and went great with our NY strip. I would definitely buy again (especially at this low price)! Just remember to let breathe for about an hour before serving.

Easy to drink but definitely on the sweeter side. Pear coming in strong.

Definitely sweeter than I was expecting (or wanting). The nose didn't hint at all that was in store.

Sweet, can definitely taste notes of peach. I will definitely get this again.

Smooth and sweet, like the back label says. A value chenin blanc from Loire that goes very well with cheese and is an easy drinking aperitif or picnic wine (at 11.5% ABV). Flowers, pear, peach, and some minerality.

Great aroma. Array of fruitiness and minerals. Awesome spring/summer wine. The right temperature makes all the difference when it comes to unavailing flavors.
