Clean almost astringent tasting
I bought this bottle and a bottle of the 05 Chard on a whim from my mother. Although not as intense in acidity or citrus flavor as my favorite New Zealand wines, it has a greater flavor and balance than the typical California SB. I find most California SBs to be extremely light and washed out, like cheap Pinot Grigio. It was not overly acidic or overbearing with any particular flavor. Nothing jumps out at you either, it is just a nice, balanced light white for a warm summer day. While not as great a value as the NZ SBs, this was a good bottle at $12.99, better if you can get it for less.
