Very nice buttery and smooth taste. Little sweeter than we might like but still went very well with rockfish and peaces for desert. Giant priced at $17, on sale for $11. Love that bale!

Notes of pear, lemongrass, some fresh apples, oaky vanilla influences on the rounded after-taste. Not overly oaked to keep it still rather refreshing.

Light gold in color.

On the nose, popcorn, butter, cedar no fruits at all.

Dry on the palate with butter, lime and grapefruit.

Fermented in small oak barrels.

13.5% alcohol by volume.

To me this was terrible. I couldn't take more than two sips. Oh well...

Aromas of oak and slight green apple, with honeycomb. Sweet taste with medium acidity and creamy vanilla and apple.

Great value. I always have a couple bottles of this around for friends who like white wine. They always comment on how they like it. 2012 is a great year for this wine.

Unmistakable peach overtones from start to finish. We had this with smoked rotisserie chicken-
Good combination.
