I was surprised by this nicely balanced, fruity wine with its harmonious spice and floral notes. Though not usually a fan of this white variety, which is slightly sweet, I found this wine uncommon. It was fabulous with an Asian stir-fry of scallops and veggies in a spicy sweet sauce. It’s a great choice as an inexpensive alternative to Riesling (especially when ordered in a restaurant) and is quite drinkable alone but this was meant for the dinner table. It’s $20 retail at the Templeton tasting room.
