Taste profile from the winemaker: "Aromas of grapefruit, mango and lime introduce the wine, and classic varietal signatures of freshly mown grass show well. In the mouth you’ll find a crisp, clean wine, surprisingly full bodied with flavors of green apple, lemon/lime and a hint of mint."
ABC Wines review: This wine exhibits a fragrance of tart citrus and freshly sliced apples. The citrus notes follow through to the palate which initially has a hint of sweetness followed by a pleasant, tart acidity. The finish is smooth, long-lasting, and dry. A good wine for lightly grilled dishes or to serve with appetizers. Our score: Above Average.
