This wine is what the Wine Spy is all about. The secret wines of the trade, the wines we buy when no one it looking. It doesn’t need a rating and it doesn’t need a discount to be a wine we think you should go find right now. First, your nose is filled with a giant fruit bowl of papaya, mango, kiwi, passion fruit and pears. It’s the kind of wine you forget to drink and spend the whole party happily just smelling. It’s all big flavor, clean texture and beautiful finish. In Karen’s words: ”you’d be crazy not to like it.”
