Taste profile from the winemaker: "Magnificent intensity of this “open wine” with floral and citrus aromas and beautiful nuances of exotic fruits. The taste is round, full of ripe fruits, rich in sensations, enhanced by a frank and citrusy finish. A perfect example of lightness and balance that makes this wine a real companion of thirst and pleasure."

ABC Wines review: Golden in color and very aromatic with a ripe tropical fruit and floral fragrance, this wine is slightly effervescent on the palate as the fruit flavors unfold. The body is light and crisp. The finish is unbalanced being initially rather too acidic before tapering off to a somewhat bitter end. Serve this wine with grilled or broiled fish. Our score: Priced high for just an Average wine.
