Overpriced and too high in acidity, I could not even begin to actually taste this wine. While it has a pleasant smile, even giving it time to breath did nothing for me, or for it. This wine probably has some potential, but I think that it needs to age and mellow longer. Too much strong lime and lemon power, which is more attributed to a sauvignon blanc.

We believe in finding something that you like the taste of, outside of the basic brands that you have been force-fed over the years through a combination of ethnically targeted advertising, and what people in your family have historically been drinking.
