This medium-bodied wine is dry with a nice, crisp acidity. I thought that there was also a bit of an alcohol burn at the standard drinking temperature, so I would recommend trying it chilled a bit cooler than other Chardonnays. The finish was a bit flat, which was disappointing in an otherwise decent Chardonnay. The flavors themselves were generally fruity and citrus, though no more specifically identifiable.
There's a great combination of berry, strawberry, and even a bit of orange flavors here. The The Pink Truck California 2007 has very soft tannins and very little acidity. Overall the balance between sweetness and dryness is fairly even, perhaps just a little on the sweet side. This makes the wine well-suited to a wide variety of foods and social situations. It's medium bodied with a very short length, making it an easy-going wine and very approachable.
As with the aromas, the taste of the Cono Sur Riesling is characterized by zesty, crisp, citrus flavors - primarily grapefruit, but with some mineral notes at the end. It's not especially complex and might prove to be a little on the sweet side for some but it has a nice, medium body and a moderate, short flavor intensity that works well in a variety of circumstances. It's acid levels work very well - strong enough to make the wine crisp, but not overwhelmingly so. You could sip it alone or pair it with food.
Because it's marked acidity, the 2007 Catena Alamos Torrontes is a wine that's better to pair with the right food than it is to just sip alone; fortunately, when paired with the right foods it really shines. Light-bodied with a fairly short-to-medium length, the flavors consist primarily of tropic fruits and melon.
Like other muscat wines the Alice White Lexia is very sweet but it is also very flavorful. It tastes strongly of mangos with some melons. It has a slightly tart finish, but I think it would be better if it were a little more acidic so that it would have a crisper finish. Alice White's Lexia is made from Muscat grapes in South Eastern Australia and is one of Alice White's most recent lines of wine. The Muscat grape appears to do quite well in the climate of South Eastern Australia, allowing Alice White to produce an unusually good desert wine.
