Taste profile from the winemaker: "Bright, pale straw. Aroma: Delicate fragrance of wildflower and fruit, especially hawthorn and Golden Delicious apples; Taste: Refreshing and lively in character with a dry, elegant, soft and fruity taste."

ABC Wines review: This wine has aromas of citrus and tree fruit with discernible floral and spice notes. Of light to medium body on the palate, the fruit flavors are accompanied by a slight bitterness. The finish is mildly acidic and has a nutty, butterscotch-like, aftertaste. Serve this wine with pasta in a mildly flavored cream sauce. Our score: Priced right, but otherwise just Average.
