I could've sworn that I've had this wine before, based on the simple design of the label, but then again, maybe I haven't. I was turned on to this wine at the Annual Brantwynn Experience at the end of the night.

Upon imbibing this offering, the first thing that came to my mind was a sublime pineapple flavor as well as light acidity, but the backend as well as the underlying flavor has elements of minerality.

Great with seafood and poultry, this wine might also go great with cheeses, if that's your bag; note to everyone: I am severely lactose intolerant, so I do very little in cheese outside cheddar slices/cubes!

For the price, this wine is an excellent everyday staple, as well as a great wine to entertain with.
