Taste profile from the winemaker: "Flowers, boiled sweets and exotic fruits on the nose of this wine is an optimal blend; fresh on the palate with long lasting aftertaste."

ABC Wines review: Tropical fruit aromas with citrus and floral notes are exhibited by this wine. Rather dry on the palate, the mild fruit flavors have a somewhat unpleasant chalky mineral quality. The finish is moderately long and increasingly astringent. Our score: We're disappointed this wine blend lacks complexity and depth. Below Average.
