This was my first experience with this particular varietal, and I came away quite impressed, even though whites with 14.5% alcohol aren't usually my cuppa tea. Golden-hued, full and fleshy with vague fruit overtones, with great mouth feel. Clearly a warm climate white that is on the edge of being flabby, but refreshing enough to pull it back from the edge... like a glass of liquid sunshine. In a blind tasting, I likely would have conjured up South African chenin blanc, which is not a bad thing at all.
Rich and full bodied, the concentration of orange blossom and pear drizzled in honey made for a lovely experience. The low acid paired nicely with Sea Scallops served on a fresh orange and parsley salad drizzled with olive oil. This helped to elevate the wine; great length, my palate was very pleased.
