Taste profile from the winemaker: "Yellow silver, with pale green reflections. Aroma: Notes of roses, orange peel, white peach, fruit salad, chamomile and some herbs. Taste: fresh and light body with pink grapefruit flavors, ripe fruit like peaches and pears. Balanced with great finesse in aromas and flavors."

ABC Wines review: This wine exhibits an intriguing blend of aromas, citrus and spice, with some orange blossom floral notes. Smooth on the palate, the fruit flavors are accompanied by a clean, mineral crispness. The finish adds a mild acidity and brings out the spice notes from the nose. A fine wine for grilled fish accompanied by a bright, fresh salsa. Our score: A great value for this quality of wine. Above Average, just shy of Excellent.
