Taste profile from the winemaker: "Pale, green-yellow color. Distinctive grapefruit, honeydew and lemon zest aromas are very forward and fresh, with a touch of green apple adding a high note. Medium bodied, with melon-citrus fruit flavors framed by ripe acidity."

ABC Wines review: A fresh blend of citrus and sweet herbal aromas are exhibited by this wine. The palate has a solid mineral base, citric flavors, and a tart finish. A food-friendly wine, it could easily be paired with a wide variety of dishes. Our score: Above Average.

Winery website: Beaulieu Vineyard. Note: The winemaker taste profile appears to apply to the 2001 vintage, the most recent one listed on the BV website.
