Notes of white peach.... pretty simple overall. Got better as the wine opened up.

A nice agreeable daily wine. Great balance, not too sweet or acidic. Good price. Will buy again.

Sufficiently dry, and priced for daily drinking.

Although A low tier producer, great typicity of the varietal and reminds me of hu one of my favorite whites Beautiful white flowers on the nose and perfectly candied apple on the palate, yet delightfully dry with nice acidity.

Light golden yellow in color. Diesel, floral and white peach notes in nose. Good acidity, Slight apple note in mouth. Fairly neutral flavor profile overall. Cleanly made but simple, not much more than basic varietal character in flavor profile. A bargain in price though

Very hard to dislike for $8. Varietal character per dollar is high.

Notes of pear, smooth and bright but not sour. Balanced. A dryer wine that a sweet wine person can get behind. My beekeeper wife noticed a hint of honey.

Lighter than I expected. Paired with pizza. Perfect balance of sweetness (very little) and dryness (also very little). Very good. Would definitely have again.
