A CRISP AND REFRESHING WHITE WINE.

Advantages: VERY SUBTLE YET DELICIOUS FLAVOUR.
Disadvantages: TOO NICE, HIC...HIC...
I enjoy a glass of white wine. I have recently been sampling a few bottles from my wine rack, and last night I decided to open a bottle of Soave white wine.
When opening the bottle the boquet of this wine is very fresh and crisp. There are very distinctive fruity notes, this works well against a deeper slightly smoky scent. It certainly smells very appetising.
The actual taste of this wine is extremely pleasing. There is a light and juicy flavour which is accompanied by rich fruity undertones. The wine is very easy to drink and is not too acidic or strong.
I thoroughly enjoyed a glass of this wine. I felt that even though I took my time the wine stayed fresh and refreshing throughout the glass. I also loved the fruity flavours which became more intense during drinking.
Although this wine is perfect on its own. I think it is a perfect wine for enjoying with white meats or pasta dishes. I also think this wine could lend itself well to being drunk with sea food. I feel its subtle and sweet fruity flavours would be a perfect accompaniment to stronger food flavours.
I also think this wine could lend itself well to being topped up with lemonade to make a refreshing summer spritzer. I can just imagine drinking these on a long summers day. Utterly bliss!!
The alcohol content in this wine is 12% I was quite suprised at this, because this sweet white wine does not taste at all strong. Although it is subtle in its flavour it is this simplicity that adds to the appeal of this wine. A thoroughly enjoyable drink.
