d'Arenberg The Stump Jump 2006 White Blend

poolside after a hot day out doors and this was a real thirst quencher. 64% riesling, 16% sauvignon blanc, 13% roussanne, and 7% marsanne. aroma was floral and grassy. crisp. taste was honeysuckle, lime, and some earth. had the dry characteristics of the riesling, but not overtly. a little of the sauv blanc citrus which added to a crisp, medium finish. almost an effervescent quality, which made it taste so good on this particular hot day. and the price was nice at about $9 a bottle. worth every penny.
