Taste profile from the winemaker: "A lively wine with fresh tropical fruit flavours. The freshness is further complemented by well balanced and complexed flavours on the palate."

ABC Wines review: Golden yellow in color, this wine exhibits aromas of tropical fruit with notes of tree fruit such as peach. The palate is ever so slightly sweet initially but little of interest follows. The fruit flavors are not particularly pronounced or well-defined. There's a slate-like, maybe chalky texture to the finish that is odd. Our score: Possibly showing its age at this point and overall rather disappointing. Below Average.
