Very pale in color with a mild citrus nose. On the mid pallet the wine displays a mild citrus, lemony flavor consistent with the nose. This is a smooth lighter style Abanrino with a medium finish and some nice acidity that lingers in the mouth. This is a very food friendly wine. I would give it an88 or so. Not bad for the price. We paired it with Shrimp fettuccine Alfredo and it held up well.

Tasting Note
Light yellow. Expressive aromas of green apple, quince and lemon curd, with a strong mineral overtone. Sappy and focused on the palate, offering spicy orchard fruit flavors that are lifted by zesty acidity and a touch of white pepper. Closes with impressive clarity and length, leaving a spicy note behind. Great value here. Score – 90. (Josh Raynolds, International Wine Cellar, Sept. 2012)
