Aromas of fresh-cut honey crisp apples and white florals are lovely. The palate is surprisingly dry and crisp after the eboulient nose. It’s lemon and lime, acid and tautness, clean and ready to clean the palate no matter you’re eating. This is a food wine, not a sipper, so enjoy with stuffed flounder.  Recommended. 88 points. DBH

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.
