Taste profile from the winemaker: "Aromas of honeysuckle, pear and lime are accented with with a hint of hazelnut. Rich and complex tropical and citrus fruit flavors lead to a creamy finish balanced with crisp green apple tartness."

ABC Wines review: Floral aromas of citrus and grapefruit are exhibited by this wine. Full-bodied and almost creamy on the palate, the fruit flavors are accompanied by a brisk mineral-like character that lead into a tart, somewhat astringent finish. We enjoyed this food-friendly wine with chicken fajitas. Our score: One the high side of Average.
