Pale yellow in the glass. The nose is fruity with grapefruit, tangerine and a honeysuckle component. On the palate it is a touch sweet with warmth from the honey note. The citrus components are ripe and fresh with just a hint of acidity. The mid palate is really nice, the mouthfeel being very round and balanced. The finish is curt, weighing on the tangerine side of things and adds a nutty note at the end. It’s a tasty wine to pop as you prepare dinner or enjoy it with salad nicoise. 88 points, drink till 2023. 3 stars for this $14 effort. Salut….
