Drinks a bit hot. Definite evidence of Chardonnay and semillon in the flavour profile. Cool bottle. Not crisp enough for me.

Delicious tropical fruit and citrus flavours hit you along with hazelnut and nice acidity on the finish.

Didn't expect to like this as much as I did. Rich, and layered.

Round, creamy structure after the most bright citrus, floral bouquet on the nose. White violet, lemon followed by earthy, toasted walnut. If you're reading this, you understand that this wine jumps across all spectrums. The toasted walnut finish is wild.

Rich and creamy with floral and peach notes. Like a Chardonnay in texture with Viognier like favors.

Loved this white blend. Light delight! And awesome label if you are into S&M or bondage.

Chardonnay is the base for a Rhone-ish blend. It's pretty good!

Clean, sharp and floral with subtle fruit notes. It was super chilled which helped the cleanness a lot. Very refreshing, I would easily kill this by the pool. $26

Sorry but there few wines that should not be made, this is one of them. Even the label is horrible.
