Taste profile from the winemaker: "This lovely wine shows refreshing pear, melon and mango in the bouquet, followed by flavors of apple, peach and creamy vanilla."

ABC Wines review: This white wine blend presents aromas of ripe tropical fruit with notes of honey. The palate has an initial burst of herbal sweetness followed immediately by a tart acidity. The fruit flavors are oddly somewhat muted and diffuse. The oak cellaring (only 5% but seems more here) is brought out in the earthy, dry finish. Our score: Average, maybe a bit lower.
