Taste profile from the winemaker: "Straw-yellow colour with greenish hues; subtle, delicate fruity and floral aromas and a fresh, tangy flavour with a nice sweet sensation in the finish."

ABC Wines review: What a delightful wine! Nearly colorless with aromas of fresh apples, maybe pears. Just slightly dry with a bit of a citrus tartness, the flavors are harmonious and refreshing. The long finish is briefly, unexpectedly, and pleasantly sweet. A terrific wine to serve with appetizers. Our score: Above Average.
