White flowers, apple, and pear show on the nose. Good Clean mineral and steel make a tight background for tart apple and lemon. Apple comes out as the wine warms. Acids are very bright. This is very clean, but not tremendously complex or long-lasting. Drink with simple broiled flounder. Recommended (88). DH

David Honig, the Publisher, looked at what was happening in the world of wine journalism and realized there were a lot of great writers out there at the same time paying publications, from newspapers to websites, were dropping like flies. So he created Palate Press to find the best writers and create a new forum for them to sell their best work. He is a self-educated oenophile, and defers to the tremendous experience and wisdom of the amazing staff at PALATE PRESS: The Online Wine Magazine.
