I opened my one bottle of this on New Year’s eve and boy was it outstanding. The intensity, color and a core of spicy white fruits we’re all in balance and while not light in the alcohol department it was not hot at all. On the finish you could taste the petite manseng as it added a hint of sweetness. The length of the finish is what makes this wine an all star. This bottle straddled right between a medium to deeper yellow color. The key to enjoying this wine is to not serve it too cold. Definitely the best white wine I have had from SQN. 94-95pts.
