My Review:

I messed up a little when I tasted this wine. It was the second of two wines I tasted that day, and I assumed the first would be semi-sweet with this one being fully sweet, but that ended up being backwards. You know what they say when you assume things… Regardless, once my palate adjusted to the less sweet wine, I ended up enjoying it. It’s not my favorite, but it was much better than the first one, so I was happy. The wine was a very light golden color that reminded me of honey. The bouquet was made up of apple and pear scents, along with something a little citrusy, that I think might have been orange. The overall taste was good, but I wish it had a little more “zing” to it. The flavors were mainly composed of apples, pears, and melons.

I drank this wine by itself and it was alright, but I think the right food could give it that little something it’s missing. Maybe a nice piece of breaded flounder or seafood risotto.
