Taste profile from the winemaker: "Explosive aromas brimming with lemon, lime and citrus blossom mingle with gooseberry and passionfruit to proudly proclaim this wine’s varietal. A generous, fruit-forward palate shows juicy citrus flavors of lime, grapefruit and tangerine, balanced by bright, crisp acidity. The pleasant finish persists on the palate with great length of flavor."

ABC Wines review: This wine has a complex aroma consisting primarily of citrus with some stone fruit notes. The palate has a crisp acidity that is nicely offset by a slight and unexpected, but not unpleasant, sweetness. The finish is clean, though brief. A very good summer wine to serve with a wide variety of dishes. Our score: Above Average.
