Taste profile from the winemaker: "Color: Light with slight tinge of green gold. Bouquet: Fresh and citrus-like. Palate: Fresh, delicate floral aromas and crisp melon and spice flavors. An added smoky, slightly pungent aspect."

ABC Wines review: This wine has very pleasant tart citrus and herbal aromas. Very smooth on the palate, the flavors are of stone dried tropical fruit with a hint of vanilla-like spice. Though refreshingly crisp, the finish is brief and ends with a bit of earthiness. A fine wine to serve alone or with appetizers. Our score: Above Average and a very good value.
