Taste profile from the winemaker: "Aroma: Shows nice Kiwi and Lime fruits. Palate: The palate is delicate but lively in structure, with good intensity on the mid palate and a crisp lingering finish. It shows excellent balance, with lovely primary fruit notes complemented by subtle acidity."

ABC Wines review: A pleasant bouquet of tropical fruits, notably pineapple with maybe a hint of melon, and citrus is presented by this wine. The palate is crisp and clean with just a bit of astringency though there is not much fruit flavor. The finish is mildly acidic and unremarkable. A versatile wine that would pair well with many cuisines. Our score: Average.
