Taste profile from the winemaker: "Vibrantly hued, it catches the light and warms a room. Breezes of ripe pears swirl with hints of peach and lotus blossom to form a heady perfume. Each sip delivers cool ripe pear slices coupled with lively acidity each more refreshing than the last."

ABC Wines review: Nearly colorless, this wine exhibits soft, almost floral, aromas of fresh picked fruit. A bit acidic, the flavors are somewhat muted and hard to characterize but are not memorable. The finish is long and rather weak. The wine improves after being open for 10 minutes or more. Our score: On the low side of Average.
