Original tasting and review : This is Cercius White Wine, France, 2012, finished at 12.5% alcohol and first sampled two years from vintage date, in August, 2014.
In the glass: Clear, hint of yellow.
On the nose: Poured at cellar temperature and swirled vigorously, shows sleek grasses and metallic sheen. From the aroma, seems like this will be tangy, sharp, with perhaps a hint of sweetness.
On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are in fact the aromatics and stainless steel of a New Zealand sauvignon blanc along with the soft, full mouthfeel of a barrel-aged chardonnay from from Sonoma. Yields a friendly, classically-structured white wine, with broad mouth feel and a clean finish.
In summary: Overall, rates three plus stars on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale. Good value.
