This is my first wine from the Netherlands that I can recall.  Tasted on board a KLM Flight. Schouwen-Druiveland is apparently one of the sunniest and driest areas of the country.  The wine is a white blend of Auxerrois, Rivaner (Müller-Thurgau), and Pinot Blanc.  Very pale silvery/gold in color.  The nose is nice with some peach and some pear notes.  A bit of chalkiness.  Light bodied but very precise.  On the palate, more apples with moderate acidity.  Nice finish.  Overall, a nice wine that will work well with lighter and medium foods.  It will work well with pasta with a tomato sauce.  Drink over the next couple of years.
