Pale in color with a lovely crisp dry nose, with some nice minerality and citrus notes coming through. On the mid palate the wine displays some lovely crisp dry citrus notes to match the nose. On the medium length finish the wine’s crispness and lively acidity linger on nicely in the mouth. This is a super food friendly wine. I would give it an 88+, which for the price is a major bargoon!!!
