Taste profile from the winemaker: "Colombard: This typical Gascogne variety lends a special fruity note to wine, a powerful and unique aroma with hints of citrus fruit, mango, pineapple or passion fruit. Ugni Blanc: This variety brings a floral bouquet, as well as vivacity and balance. "

ABC Wines review: Nearly colorless, this white wine blend has a fragrance of citrus and tropical fruit with floral notes that is carried through to the palate. Slightly sweet, the body is fairly weak, almost watery, with flavors of melon and pineapple. The finish is brief and not memorable. This wine is best served alone or with light snacks; it would make a terrific and relatively inexpensive wine to serve at gatherings of friends and family. Our score: Average to somewhat better than average.

Winery website: None found.
