The bottle was called "Pomelo", and was pretty good at 9 bucks. I think Wine Spectator just gave it 88-points, which is respectable at that price point. The goat cheese was great with this, btw.
Sweet review....some pun intended. Im a red wine fan but sometimes white is very refreshing. Its been a long time since Ive had a good chenin blanc.
