Ben says

★ Good Wine Ripe, soft aromas of peach, green mango and nectarine with yoghurt-like notes. A little floral and baked on the palate with flecks of croissant pastry and butter. Bloated, fruity finish. A reliable bet albeit a little one dimensional.

Fruit driven, warm and lightly creamy whites like this work very well with creamy pasta dishes, especially with a little salty pancetta.
