YARD DOG WHITE - 2006
From McClaren Vale, Australia. White blend of 55% Chardonnay, 15% Sauvignon Blanc, 15% Riesling, 10% Semillon, 5% Viognier. 13.7% alcohol.
Pale yellow color. Fair amount of acidity. Light, smooth, dry and bright with citrus on the nose. Pear and melon dominate the mid-palate with honey on the finish.
SCORE & RECOMMENDATION:
Reminds me of an average Pinot Grigio. Drinkable and a solid value at $9 a bottle but not at all exciting. I wouldn't exactly recommend this wine, but I think it is pleasant enough to be enjoyed by many.
