One of the wines that came to me as a Christmas gift, this wine was the best of the whites that came in the package.

Produced by the so-called 'King of Sauvignon Blanc,' it was a welcome taste that showed me that all of these types of wines don't have to be full and robust to be enjoyed.

This quaff has a more mellow, understated flavoring that gives it a refined taste that should be amenable to almost any palate, whether the person like dry or wet. It's hard to say that it fits both ends of the spectrum, but in a way, it does, and it just works.
