Taste profile from the winemaker: "The nose of this medium-bodied, refreshing wine offers hints of citrus, grapefruit and lime aromas. Full flavors of passion fruit, ripe melon and kiwi grace the palate."

ABC Wines review: Lightly fragrant, this nearly colorless wine has aromas of stone fruit and lime. The palate is quite tart, a bit too acidic, and surprisingly weak in flavor, almost watery. The finish is brief and overly astringent. Our score: Below Average.
