The nose is fascinating, and blend of Viognier, with its tropical fruit, and Sauvignon Blanc, with cut grass and white grapefruit. The comparison runs through the palate, too. Unctuous tropical fruit, guava and mango, are counter-balanced by crisp white grapefruit, fresh grass, and lime zest. This is a delightfully balanced and intriguing wine, particularly for the price. Drink with a fried grouper sandwich and very crisp fries. Highly Recommended. 90 points. DBH
