Taste profile from the winemaker: "Lime, melon and Anjou pears intermingle with sweet and tropical fruits such as fig and kiwi to create this delightfully refreshing wine. Hints of grapefruit highlight the mineral qualities of this wine’s suprisingly long finish."

ABC Wines review: Fragrant aromas of tropical fruits, notably pineapple and melon, are exhibited by this wine. Quite smooth on the palate, the blend of fruit flavors is balanced by a gentle minerality. The long, mildly acidic finish is nice. This is a very food-friendly wine and could easily be served with a wide variety of cuisines. Our score: Above Average, nearly Excellent.
