Taste profile from the winemaker: "Strikes the perfect balance between mouthwatering fruit and crisp acidity. It's packed with luscious tropical, citrus, and white stone fruit, accented with a touch of honey. An ideal party wine, this pairs well with most everything, from salads and light pasta dishes to mild cheeses, sushi, and seafood."

ABC Wines review: Lightly fragrant, this wine has aromas of tree fruit notably green apple and pear. Moderately dry on the palate, the flavors are surprisingly weak, not diluted, just weak. The finish adds some acidity but is short and otherwise not memorable. Definitely not to be served as an aperitif, this wine needs food to bring out its character. Our score: On the low side of Average (and overpriced at that).
