A medium lemony colour, it has the gentle aroma of citrus and acacia flower. This is a complex wine, giving up a consistent floral white grape taste mixed with a subtle hint of grapefruit and passion fruit. The taste gets more mixed and identifiable through to the finish. It is the Semillon component of this wine that adds the citrus sharpness to it which makes for an interesting and refreshing wine
It is crisp and light enough to drink on its own, but do not over chill or you would hide its delicate flavor. Easily competes with typical restaurant wine.
This Calvet Bordeaux Blanc 2011 is part of the Aldi Core Collection so should be available all year round.
