Taste profile from the winemaker: "As bright and appealing to the eye as the wonderful array of fruit and floral characteristics are to the nose. The flavors are reminiscent of a blend of sweet grapefruit, lemon zest and a hint of honeydew melon. The acid provides structure and crispness that sustains the finish without overpowering the fruit with tartness."

ABC Wines review: Exceptionally pale in color, this wine has aromas of crisp apple and pear with a slight, but noticeable citrus note. Quite crisp on the palate, the fruit flavors initially come alive but dissipate into the finish that disappoints as it becomes rather watery, lacking body. Our score: We think this would be a good picnic wine to accompany cold sandwiches and a fresh fruit salad. Just Average though.
