This wine is a gorgeous shade of orange/pink. On the nose I get strawberry and lemon zest, pink grapefruit and almonds. On the palate it is a touch sweet, apricots come to mind. The strawberry component reappears on the mid palate with notes of lanolin and lemon. The finish is refreshing, a touch acidic and decent in length. Light red fruit notes carry through to the end. This is a nice, if somewhat sweet, summer sundowner. I would serve it with charcuterie, hard cheeses and some fresh figs. Drink till 2022. 88 points and 4 stars for this $13 Valdiguié, a varietal I have never tried before. Salut….
