Taste profile from the winemaker: "Blended to perfection this dry white wine showcases the best characteristics of several of Florida’s Hybrid Bunch grapes. This wine complements many types of fish and poultry dishes or possible just for sipping and relaxing."

ABC Wines review: This wine has a tropical fruit and honey blend of aromas. A bit crisp and slightly overly acidic on the palate, the fruit flavors lack any real balance or depth. The finish has a somewhat unpleasant woodsy characteristic possibly due to excessive oak cellaring. Our score: We served our bottle with Friday night sandwiches and chips, actually not a bad choice. Florida is not known for its wines, but there are far worse wines from far better known regions. On the low, very low, side of Average.
