Pale in color mild on the nose with some chard smells coming through. On the mid pallet this wine is VERY subtle. When I first tried it I paired it with a pork chop and I must say I was underwhelmed. I suspect it was too cold. As it warmed up some of it’s character came through and it started to build in the mouth. My first though was this is simple sugar water. As it built up I started to appreciate some of the complexities in different layers that came through. In the end the wine had a nice finish, slightly tart. Don’t expect this one to blow your socks off but it is an interesting experience with a lot of patience and the right temperature. I would give it an 88 or so. Won’t be rushing out for more.
