ABC Wines review: Golden yellow in color, this wine has aromas of citrus and honey with notes of orange rind. The palate is of light to medium body and adds a distinct herbal character to the fruit flavors. The finish is mildly acidic, fruity, and of reasonable length. Allowing this wine to breathe a bit seemed to slightly improve its overall complexity. Decidedly not one to serve as an aperitif, it is, however, a nice wine to pair with a chicken pasta dish. Our score: Average, maybe a touch better.
