Taste profile from the winemaker: "Bright yellow color. Aromatic with nose of white flowers and a faint grassiness. Medium-bodied with instant grip and a sensation of grassiness (less strong than in Sauvignon); aromas of lechèe; a good texture and quite a long finish. Drinks well now but, if kept 4 or 5 years, will develop more complex nutty aromas."

ABC Wines review: Nicely fragrant, this wine has aromas of tropical fruit with some peach and faint herbal notes. Clean and crisp on the palate, the tropical fruit flavors are present in a medium body accompanied by a mild acidity. The nuanced finish is pleasantly long and satisfying. A good choice for cold chicken dishes or summer salads. Our score: A complex and delicious wine. Above Average, nearly Excellent.

Winery website: None found. No image of the bottle or label could be located.
