Taste profile from the winemaker: "A light straw-yellow color in the glass. Light and pleasant floral notes fill the nose and the vibrant palate envelopes the mouth. The excellent harmony of fruit and acid give the wine a full structure with a crisp and lively mouth feel. The wine is light-bodied with a long finish."

ABC Wines review: This pinot grigio has soft, floral aromas of apples and pears. A bit sweet at first, the full fruit flavors come through with some stone mineral notes. The finish is very long and pleasant. A simple wine, but very good and an exceptional value. Our score: Above Average.
