Taste profile from the winemaker: "Tropical fruit, guava and melon aromas, crisp and bold sweet citrus backed by refreshing acidity and minerality characteristic of our coastal vineyards. A versatile food wine to go with most poultry, fish and salad dishes. Also fabulous as an aperitif for a hot summer afternoon. Serve chilled."

ABC Wines review: A light greenish gold in color, this wine has a fresh, herbal citrus aroma. The palate is not particularly flavorful, but has a subtle tropical fruit-like sweetness that is balanced with a crisp, dry stone almost chalk-like character. The finish is fairly weak and not memorable. We found this wine paired well with a mildly spicy Asian dish. Our score: About Average.
