Taste profile from the winemaker: "Crisp and refreshing, [this wine's] fruity aroma of citrus blossoms and peaches is well balanced by delicate herbaceous undertones. Fruity and floral characteristics enhanced by a pleasant acidity intensify the wine’s freshness and smooth lingering on the palate."

ABC Wines review: This wine's citrus aromas are paired with tropical fruit and melon notes. Smooth on the palate, the fruit flavors are enhanced by a soft mineral crispness. There is a bit of herbal, possibly vegetal, character as well but it is somewhat muted. The finish is rather weak and mildly acidic. A nice wine for tomato-based pasta dishes. Our score: Average.
