Taste profile from the winemaker: "The hue of brilliant canary diamonds, this wine bursts open with aromas of a summertime farmers market, with ripe apricots, peaches, lavender bouquets and orchid blossoms. Not to be taken lightly, this swanky white is passionately floral and delectably juicy. Its layers of crisp acidity unfold amid flavors of fresh lime, gala apples, grapefruit and lemongrass."

ABC Wines review: The zork is new to us, but is easy to open and has a nice cork-like "pop" to it when pulled. The wine is very fragrant with notes of tree fruit blossoms, peaches, and a little honey. An acidity rapidly develops on the palate slightly masking the fruit flavors of which green apple and lime are the most discernable. The finish is quite pleasant, long and smooth. This would be a very versatile wine on the dinner table, pairing well with a wide variety of dishes. Our score: Well Above Average.
