Tucked away on the shelves at Safeway and priced at about half that of a typical Vouvray, this wine is not one that for which I had high expectations. But it was a most pleasant surprise. Fresh and flavorful, with a texture not unlike that of a nice, very slightly off-dry German Riesling. Subtle aromas and flavors of citrus blossoms, honey, and bright white fruit that struck me as a cross between peach and orange; refreshingly lively feel. A nice wine to sip on its own, and it works well with spicy food. - HK 2010-06-07
