Clear gold color, very pale. Warm, slightly oxidative white-wine aromatics: Subtle beeswax, almonds and honey. Mouth-filling and ripe flavors, white fruit and a hint of almond; snappy acidity in a long finish, fine with food. US Importer: VIAS Imports Ltd., NYC. (Feb 6, 2003)
FOOD MATCH: Fine with a simple Italian classic, fettuccine with white clam sauce.

Wine notes in 'shelf-hanger' format:
We publish Wine Lovers' Page tasting reports in the familiar "shelf-hanger" size and format, to make it easy for wine merchants or collectors to print them out, clip and post them where this wine is displayed. We do ask, however, that the WineLoversPage.com name, logo and URL be left intact, and that these reports be used with the specific wines rated, not different bottlings or vintages.
Our tasting policy:
All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I accept no free samples from wineries or distributors, purchasing all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.
