Taste profile from the winemaker: "Appearance: Pale straw. Aroma: Fresh notes of pear, apricot and honeydew melon are accented by hints of citrus and lemongrass. Flavor: Crisp apple and pear with notes of honey and ripe peach mingle softly with white pepper that adds a mineral touch to the vibrant, fruity finish."

ABC Wines review: A pale yellow in color, this pinot grigio exhibits aromas of sweet citrus with a hint of melon. The taste is remarkably similar to fresh squeezed lemonade, a bit tart and and a bit sweet. The finish, though long, is not particularly memorable. Think outdoors when serving this wine, such as at a picnic or garden party. Our score: On the high side of Average.
