Henry of Pelham Estate Winery Henry of Pelham Sibling Rivalry White 2008
Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: September 11, July 26, September 12 and March 7.
A lovely easy-drinking that hits the right price-quality point for most palates and wallets. Delicious notes of blackberries and plums with a supple, full-bodied texture. Enjoy it with pizza, hamburgers and your best friends.

Opinions about wine differ greatly as the experience is subjective. You may find it helpful to compare this critical evaluation of the wine with mine as well as your own:
|Corinna Horton rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:|
Easy at the table for a casual meal. Enough body to back a blue-cheese burger, full and fruity. I had to try it because I loved the label. Yes, I am that much of a girl.
|Bright, white and out of sight; the triumvirate of Riesling, Chardonnay and Gewurztraminer. Long names and hard to pronounce, so we call this wine 'White'. Not just another single varietal wine--why choose one grape when you can have three? Think lime citrus and apple freshness with a dash of lychee fruit, in that order. As someone said at a recent event, "tastes like a sun-vacation".|
