Rene Barbier Mediterranean White

This wine is a great great value. If you can find it, stock up. I'll try to find an online retailer we can link to.

A very enjoyable and super value white table wine. The blend of Spanish grape varietals is a classic combination resulting in a fruity and not-too-sweet wine. It's crisp with light acidity.

Had some more of this wine in a blind tasting a few days ago and wasn't as crazy about it. Maybe it was the serving temp. Maybe this bottle wasn't stored properly.

Maybe I was so caught up in the low price and the fact that we were going to serve it at our wedding that I gave it the high score. This wine was still the winner in our blind tasting of 5 whites (more on this later), but I didn't think it was the 5-stars I had rated earlier, so I've changed my rating to 4.

Very citrus-y, tart, stays in the nose. Very good finish and quality aftertaste. Highly recommended. I imagine I would pair this with fish and poultry, but in reality I like it so much, I pair it with everything but water.

This wine really is enjoyable as most of you said. I saw it on the shelves at Trader Joe's but didn't actually try it until Mario Batali was serving it to Gwyneth Paltrow on the Travel Channel. Really delightful and one of my favorites, especially for the price.

Great wine for the price. Grapefruity, light and dry. Nice for simply drinking and with lighter, less robust food.

I like white wines, mostly sauvignon blanc and chardonny, but this is a wine any one can enjoy. I found this at world market for only 6$ so I thought it wouldn't be a big financial loss if it wasn't great. This white wine is very dry and has a smooth finish. It's now my favorite wine! Even my parents who are rich red wine people really enjoyed this! But it's not very easy to find. When I go back to SC to visit my dad again, I will go to world market and by several.

Delicious, refreshing and a great price. I like chardonny and some white zinfandels, but this I really enjoy especially during the summer months. Its hard to find, so stock up.

good value-priced wine using the same grapes as spanish cava. i think it is also carried by total wine. served at home with salmon with a dill-garlic rub.
