Taste profile from the winemaker: "An expressive fruit-forward character, exhibiting rich aromas of white peach and honeydew melon. The bright aromas and complex varietal characters of citrus and elements of spice add both weight and interest to the wine. The flavors of peach, melon and fig are melded together in a rich core, resulting in a round mouth feel which compliments its crisp, clean finish."

ABC Wines review: This wine has a pleasing fragrance of fresh melon with white fruit notes. The dried fruit flavors are balanced with a mineral crispness on the palate. The rather acidic finish is briefly hot before smoothing out. This wine should pair well with most grilled dishes. Our score: Above Average.
