Nothing spectacular but for the price deserves 3 stars. Smooth, slightly fruity, easy to drink.
Summery, fruity, full bodied taste. Hints of apple and pear, and other fruits which I cannot pinpoint. Delicious in the summer chilled.
White wine at our wedding. Even Bill liked it, but maybe he was just being kind ;)
I found this on clearance at my local wine and spirits store. I was not expecting much at $3.99 at bottle but figured if nothing else it would make a great cooking wine. I actually loved this white. It's fresh, crisp and a complete delight.
I have commented on this wine in the past. I still think it is an awesome bargain (US$3.49 at Total Wines and at Cost Plus World Marketplace). An uncomplicated, refreshing wine that still stands up to a hearty meal. We had it with pizza, last night.
Nose is a bit closed, like a pinot gris, light and grassy. Apricot and pear round it out. The mouth is also mild, slightly buttery, and generally pleasant.

This simple summer sipper is clean, fresh and grassy, with aromas of apple and green melon. Surprisingly mouthfilling for something so easygoing, but still packed with melon and citrus flavors. Fresh and zesty, and just right for patio parties.

This bright, friendly white has fruity, almost candied flavors of orange, lemon and lime, with vanilla accents and a round, soft texture kept crisp by tart acidity. Drink now.
Brisk and tangy with lovely ripe tropical fruit and juicy acidity; exudes charm; 40% Xarello, 30% Macabeo, 30% Parellada.
Renandeacute; Barbier Mediterranean White is made from the first pressing of Parellada, Macabeo, and Xarel-lo grapes, the same blend of grapes that produces Cavas. This is a down-to-earth country wine, cheerful; and crisp, with forward fruit. It delightfully enhances healthy Mediterranean-style fish, vegetable, veal, and pasta dishes.
Light and refreshing as a sea breeze, this crisp, limey Spanish white is a steal at $6.
