Alcohol: 11.5% Color: pale gold
Nose: lilies of the valley? pear?
Palate: Somewhat reminiscent of a Riesling

Sensations of sweetness AND acidity. Medium body. I was reminded of white flowers but had trouble picking a fruit descriptor. Pear seemed the closest. I'm thinking it may have been the balance of sweetness and acidity that reminded me of German rieslings. Label describes as full and long-lasting (I think more medium body and finish) and harmonious, with floral aromas. Paired one night with chicken/asparagus baked dish, rice and salad and another night with shrimp and broccoli baked dish. It was a pleasant dinner wine and at about $9.00 in a grocery store a nice value wine.
