Taste profile from the winemaker: "A youthful wine showing fresh ripe melon with a mellow, round, mild and honeysuckle fruit palate and refreshingly long finish."

ABC Wines review: Very refreshing tropical fruit and melon aromas with some sweet, spicy notes are exhibited by this wine. The palate is initially semi-dry, less sweet than one might expect, and very flavorful. A crisp acidity develops into the finish that unfortunately lacks depth and balance. A good wine to serve with shellfish. Our score: Priced right for what it is, but on the whole not better than Average.

Winery website: Ken Forrester Vineyards. The image of the bottle is slightly different than that reviewed here.
