The first thing you notice is bubbles – this wine is lightly effervescent. The nose hints of a little sauvignon blanc, with grass and gooseberry, but it does not appear on the palate. On the palate it opens with apple and pear with just a fine spritz of lemon. On the mid-palate it softens, turning to banana and bubble gum. Off-dry and balanced with moderate acids, this is interesting and moderately priced. Drink with Eggs in a Hole on Breakfast for Dinner Night. Recommended. 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.
