Medium straw with slight green tinge. Intense nose of citrus, banana, honey, confection, apple, apricot, some floral and minerality. Dry, quite crisp with a medium body but a slightly short finish. Crisp and aromatic, drink now. March 2011.

It's only wine but I like it

A Silician white made from indigenous varieties. Notes of apples and citrus fruit, with faint scents of peaches. Enough acidity to keep it from tasting flabby and average finish. Well made, and a good summer wine, but missing that certain something (to my plate anyway) that really makes it stand out. But for less than 13 bucks, it represents good value.
