Taste profile from the winemaker: "Intriguing aromas of lemon, lime and lichee are joined with unexpected hints of anise and lavender. Medium-bodied, with tangy acidity and fruit-popping crispness, you’ll enjoy lemongrass and mineral flintiness that make this wine one of the most refreshing offered by the Goddesses."
ABC Wines review: Aromas of sweet tree fruit are exhibited by this wine. Crisp on the palate, the flavors are surprisingly weak, overpowered by a minerality that lacks balance. The finish is long, slightly too acidic, and ultimately not memorable. Our score: Disappointing, especially at this price point. On the very low side of Average.
