Taste profile from the winemaker: "Delicate. Sleek. Like a welcome tropical breeze. Our Sauvignon Blanc with delightful scents of ripe tropical fruits and hints of fresh flowers, is perfect for everyday moments as well as sophisticated occasions. Expect the subtle tastes of ripe melon and white nectarine accented with the freshness of lemon zest."

ABC Wines review: This wine exhibits pleasing, fresh fruit aromas. Initially a bit sweet, it finishes somewhat dry. The flavor profile is of mixed, consisting of somewhat overripe tropical fruits, and is not memorable; there are no grassy or herbal notes typical of this varietal. Though not a terrific wine by any means, it is better than many others costing twice as much. At $6 it is a wonderful value. Our score: Average.
