Taste profile from the winemaker: "Lively varietal aromas of grass, fresh citrus and herbs with slight taste of melon. Fresh and crisp, with lively body and a lingering finish."

ABC Wines review: Fresh, tropical fruit and melon flavors are exhibited in this nicely balanced wine. Though not as crisp as some wines of this varietal, it retains some mineral notes. The finish is dry. Very good alone as an aperitif, it also pairs well with vegetable and pasta dishes. Rated 87 points by Wine Spectator in 2007. Our score: Above average.
