Taste profile from the winemaker: "This carefully crafted wine offers refreshing aromas and flavors of citrus, melon and tropical fruit. Enjoy with a variety of seafood, light appetizers and white sauce pasta dishes. Serve chilled."

ABC Wines review: Nearly colorless, this wine exhibits aromas of lime and honeydew melon. Very light on the palate, the fruit flavors are not particularly pronounced but are pleasing with a mineral dryness. The finish is brief but not memorable. A fine wine for a light lunch or to accompany vegetable-based appetizers with a creamy dip. Our score: A bit better than Average.

Winery website: Beringer Vineyards. Note: As of the date of this review, this wine is not referenced on the winery's website. The image of the bottle is from an earlier vintage.
