Taste profile from the winemaker: "Lemony yellow in colour with elegant, greenish tones. Intense aromas of mainly apple and pineapple with a light citrus background. In the mouth it is fresh and tasty with a light acidity and balance."

ABC Wines review: A greenish yellow in color, this wine has floral aromas of red and yellow apples with some mineral notes. A very slight initial sweetness on the palate quickly evolves into a citrus flavor with a balanced acidity. The finish isn't notable but does linger. Our score: Priced very attractively, this is a light, fun wine that can be enjoyed at parties. Above Average.
