A fantastic wine, best served very cold! Lots of floral aromas and a strong citrus after-taste - lemon and orange juice especially. Works really well with fish dishes or, as I found to my surprise, your favourite Chinese takeaway. Can't recommend it highly enough, especially for the price. Don't miss out!
