Taste profile from the winemaker: "Fruit-forward in character, with flavors of citrus, ripe apple and a touch of vanilla, balanced with some minerality and a finish you can’t ignore. There are hints of fresh flowers in the nose, even earthy, back to the Garden delights."
ABC Wines review: The aromas of this wine are of freshly cut apples with some pear notes. Very smooth on the palate, the balanced fruit flavors are quite refreshing. There's just a touch of sweetness on the finish. A good choice for sipping or with snacks, even pizza. Our score: Well Above Average.
