L'Ecole No. 41 2006 Washington State "Walla Voila" Chenin Blanc ($14.99)
Transparent, light straw color. Pears and melons, rather ripe and forward white fruit on the nose and palate. Juicy and fresh pear and citrus flavors, gentle sweetness more than adequately balanced by a vibrant edge of fresh-fruit acidity. US Importer: (Aug 9, 2007)
FOOD MATCH: The slight sweetness of the wine works very well indeed with the reciprocal sweetness of fresh bay scallops seared in butter and finished with a dash of lemon and lime juices, served over linguine.

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.
