This has always been a favorite value wine. Although the wine sees no oak, it spends four months on the lees leaving a creamy texture and notes that resemble oak. Green/gold in color, clear and bright. The nose has some vanilla, along with pears and lanolin. Light to medium bodied. On the palate, there is a nice green apple note with plenty of energy. A bit of salinity on the finish. This drinks well on its own and would pair quite well with shellfish. Drink over the next few years.
