The importer is promoting this "Lovers' Blend" as something special for Valentine's Day, but you don't need to be an ardent romantic to enjoy this well-made dry white wine. Its creamy texture is offset by good acidity, and its vibrant flavors of pear, apple, spices, minerals and honey come together in a way that will stand up to spicy food. All in all, an admirable and economical alternative to chardonnay.
