The nose is very pleasant, white flowers, sweet lime, and a bit of apple. It opens pleasantly on the palate, offering up apples, lime, and florals. Sweet lime turns more bitter, adding pith on the mid-palate and dominating on the finish. Acids are good. Drink with fish and chips. Recommended (88). DH

About The Author

David Honig

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.
