Taste profile from the winemaker: No description provided. From the bottle: "Citrus sorbet character and undertones of sweet spice and tropical fruits."

ABC Wines review: A golden yellow in color, this wine has aromas of apple, melon, and apricot with notes of honey which are nicely carried forward to the palate. A mild acidity develops, but the finish, though long, has an odd taste, somewhat spicy but more like overripe fruit. An unusual wine that may be served with chicken dishes. Our score: Average.

Winery website: Tienen Duende Wines. Note: this wine is only available at SuperValu grocery stores (Albertsons, Jewel, Shaws, and others).
