Taste profile from the winemaker (from the bottle's label): "Showcases vibrant fruit aromas of apricots, peaches and honeysuckle with pleasant floral notes and a refreshing, clean finish."

ABC Wines review: This wine exhibits a fragrance of ripe tropical fruit. The palate is ever so sweet initially but quickly unfolds into a blend of tropical fruit flavors of moderate body balanced with a mild acidity. The finish is undistinguished but is long and pleasing nonetheless. A nice wine to serve with chicken dishes (though we confess we had it with hamburgers topped with ripe tomatoes and crisp lettuce). Our score: Above Average, just short of Excellent.

Winery website: None found.
