Comments: Kevin bought this lovely white for me to go with our fresh cherries. This was the wine that the employee at the liquor store recommended. I always wonder where they come up with this stuff. This was a nice sipping wine when well chilled. It is grassy – it even smells green! It was not too sweet and not overpowering but it also had no discernible flavours. That’s not always a bad thing. This wine would be great with a salad, a fish dish or something else light. I can’t see it with creamy dishes or anything heavy.

If you are new to wine this would be a hard one to buy as it has no description on the bottle. That makes it hard to know what to buy this wine for.

Would I buy this wine again? Maybe…. $18 is a pricey white for me and it didn’t ring enough bells to warrant another go. It might be a nice gift wine. That would be the only reason I would buy it again.
