Color: Pale straw.
Nose: Grassy and faint pear. Hint of citrus.
Palate: More grassy and pear flavor. Mid palate is made up of lemon, apple (?) and flower notes. Fairly crisp.
Finish: Clean and dry. Slightly bitter.
Comment: Good QPR consider the price paid ($7). Personally, I prefer Chenin Blanc from Saumur and Savennières which has more minerality. 14% alcohol is a bit too high as good food wine, but nonetheless, this wine match well with a dinner of roasted hake and garden salad.
Refrigerated overnight. Served with a dish of stirred-fried green beans, chicken stripes, onion and celery. This alcohol is is noticeably receded and grassy nose less dominant, but the mouth feel remains the same. On palate, in addition to the pears, it becomes more floral with even a hint of honey.
