Color: The wine smiles up at you from the glass with a very bright, transparent, pale straw color. This one was lighter than other Vouvrays I've had, which was a good sign to me because usually lighter colors indicate more acid and less sugar -- the style of Vouvray that I prefer!

Smell: Although the wet bathing suit smell was there, it was integrated with a creamy lemon, orange sherbet aroma so I got over it quickly. The green tea and ginger scents were really nice and made me want to dig into this and see if it delivered on the soft, spicy nose.

Taste: The taste was lightly sweet with green apple and ripe apricot. My grandma used to feed us these little fruit jelly candies that looked like citrus slices and had sugar on them. I was reminded of those. The texture was great -- it was round because of the sugar but there was good acid so the wine had a nice balance. Although slightly bitter at the finish, the sugar did a good job of covering that and it ended on a good note. When MC Ice and I tasted the wine with a piece of buttered bread before dinner, the wine took on a creamy, 1/2 and 1/2 quality that was awesome. It had low alcohol, so we sipped it easily with our light pasta in olive oil and it was a great complement!
