1st experience with this DOC, but moderately impressed. N.B. Note from just over a week ago, but with wine focus in mind
Pleasantly herbal nose with some background honey & lime. On the palate good sprightly acidity coupled with a texturally medium weight wine, which works well. Not a bad length finish and some butter emerges at the end. All in all well balanced, reasonably complex, but without over-extending itself. A very useful wine that maybe didn't go with the cod as well as I'd hoped, but should be a good food wine with a variety of fish, but also has the body to work well with Pork IMO.
