Taste profile from the winemaker: "Displays aromas of grapefruit, mineral scents and jasmine. On the palate the wine is crisp, with a medium texture and flavors of melon, lemon zest, and apricots. A steely finish makes this wine very food friendly and the lingering tartness helps balance the wine."

ABC Wines review: Gold in color with significant green highlights, this wine is powerfully fragrant with aromas of citrus and mineral. Smooth, almost creamy on the palate, strong citrus and herbal flavors dominate. The long finish is brisk with a nice acidity though doesn't have much depth or character. This wine would pair well (as we did) with pasta and a rich, garlic and onion tomato sauce. Our score: Above Average, Nearly Excellent.
