Taste profile from the winemaker: "... an outstanding example of a fruit driven, citrus, fresh and vibrant, varietal style. This wine is suitable for drinking with a wide variety of light food dishes. Bouquet: Fresh, lifted lemons and limes with underlying ripe tropical fruit notes. Palate: Fruit driven lively lemons and limes. Soft and flavoursome with natural mineral acidity creating balance and length of flavour."

ABC Wines review: This semi-dry riesling surprised us. It has a wonderful bouquet, light and refreshing. The tropical fruit flavors with a hint of citrus and mineral notes are well balanced, if not particularly pronounced. This wine is probably best paired with appetizers or a light salad. At $8, it's a very good value. Our score: Above Average.
