The nose shows barely-ripe white peaches, white flowers, and a tiny hint of ginger. The palate is an interesting combination of tart and sweet. The tart comes through as Key lime, the sweet from white peaches. Tart green apple shows on the mid-palate. Lime shows again and lingers on the finish. This is a very pleasant wine, not tremendously complex but offering a few honest layers of flavors. Drink with baked scallops. Recommended (88). DH

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.
