Argiolas Nuragus di Cagliari S'Elegas 2012

Member Review by drdebs:

Opulent and fat white with aromas and flavors of honey, peach, apricot, and ripe mango. Like the most orange fruit salad you can imagine. Not light and lemony like most Nuragas, this one is for rich seafood dishes, curry, or something with spice. Had it with buttery scampi and it was ok but it would have been better with something spicier.

Complex oaky nose with medium to full bodied palate. The way the tropical fruits and oak play together is very interesting. (in a good way) I get a cantelope smell on the nose i quite enjoy. The full, almost oily mouth feel with a good strong finish of tropical fruits is not what i was expecting. I was thinking this wine would have had more acidity and citrus appeal. Overall i was pleased and would buy this wine again.
