The nose shows grass, lemon-lime, and grapefruit aromas. The palate leads with soft lemon lime flavors, the bright acids counter-balanced with ginger snap. Fresh, bright, and just slightly frizzante, this is made for picnic blankets and lazy summer afternoons. Drink with fried chicken. Recommended. 87.

David Honig, the Publisher, looked at what was happening in the world of wine journalism and realized there were a lot of great writers out there at the same time paying publications, from newspapers to websites, were dropping like flies. So he created Palate Press to find the best writers and create a new forum for them to sell their best work. He is a self-educated oenophile, and defers to the tremendous experience and wisdom of the amazing staff at PALATE PRESS: The Online Wine Magazine.
