About

91

"Silver-straw color. Offers the same high-pitched, mineral-driven citrus profile of the St. Vincent but with added elements of yellow plum and pungent herbs. Lively but deeply concentrated orange and orchard fruit flavors show weightier nectarine and mango qualities in the mid-palate, with a dusty mineral element adding focus. The herbal quality repeats on the tangy finish. For the price, this is a steal."

Looking for a great cheese pairing for this wine?
This livley white is best paired with Montes De Toledo. This goat cheese is a unique cheese from La Mancha. A rare find in the US, Montes De Toledo has a buttery texture, but the rich flavor is floral and nutty with the perfect amount of acidity, This truly unique experience is still mild enough to satisfy the most basic of palates, yet complex enough for the more experienced cheese connoisseur.
