Taste profile from the winemaker: "Color: Pale yellow with shades of green. Nose: Aromas typical of the varietal reminiscent of citrus fruit and soft herbaceous notes. Palate: Flavor is well-rounded, with strong acidity that is reminiscent of ripe citrus fruit."

ABC Wines review: This wine has a fresh, citrusy and grassy fragrance. Crisp on the palate, the fruit flavors are balanced with a brisk minerality and acidity. The cleansing finish is of moderate length. Our score: Serve this wine (as we did) with broiled chicken and roasted potatoes. Above Average.
