02 Luis Pato, Maria Gomes White Wine

An enticing and complex, yet emminently quaffable single varietal, Pato's Maria Gomes is nearly everything a white table wine can be. It combines the zingy grapefruit and tropicalia of New Zealand sauv blanc with the buttery apple and pear of white Burgundy and sparkling wine. Brillant contrast of acid on the nose with an almost sweet -- however short -- finish of vanilla and peppered herbs.
