Christmas at Biltmore White Wine

Wine: Christmas at Biltmore
Store: World Market
Cost: $4.99 (?) at a 50% off after Christmas Sale

I bought this wine on a whim. It was on sale and the label was pretty. Since we were having an after Christmas dinner the other night with a dear friend, I decided we would take it over and give it a try. When said friend pulled it out of the fridge, he said he was excited to try it as he had previously enjoyed their Riesling. Unfortunately, this white wine blend was so good. I didn't save the bottle or label and cannot find information from the winery about the wine, but I do remember it was listed as "semi-sweet." It was like drinking perfume. I absolutely did not like this wine. It tasted like a syrupy sweet moscato, and while I can appreciate a good sweet wine, this one was just too much. I'm thankful that I got this on clearance, and that I was not planning on giving it to anyone as a gift.

Rating: 1 out of 5 stars
