Taste profile from the winemaker: "Colour: Straw yellow with steel edges. Clean and brilliant. Bouquet: Intense yet refined aromas of tropical fruit and anis. Elegant and straightforward. Palate: Balanced, fresh and smooth."

ABC Wines review: This wine exhibits aromas of dried fruit with earthly, possibly nutty, overnotes. The palate is somewhat weak with indistinct fruit flavors. The finish begins dry with some astringency but diminishes quickly. This wine would pair well with broiled fish. Our score: At best Average at this price point.
