Yep, it's true, I haven't the faintest idea how to rate White wines, but since you mentioned it, I'll give you my opinion of this one.
When I first looked at the name on the bottle I thought: "EROTICA", and so did some others I know (MAD MEN would be proud), but at last, the quality of this wine is not far from erotic. It is dry, with crisp citrus, a fine aroma; Eroica is perfect alone or on a hot afternoon or evening of relaxation or fun. Paired with Alaskan King crab, or lightly sauteed scallops with a hint of Cayenne, makes for a great treat.
This is a Chateau Ste Michelle wine from Washington State, but in the German tradition of wine-making.
At $16.99, this was a steal, so I bought three, but should have bought a case.
Eroica means Heroic in Italian, but you knew that.
Eroica also makes for fine listening pleasure: http://tinyurl.com/56ewnn
I scored this wine a 92, but Wine Spectator scored it 90, while Wine And Spirits scored it 94.
