Taste profile from the winemaker: "The wine is vividly bright with flavors of pear, quince and grapefruit essence with an eruption of floral aromas. An inspired complement to shellfish, grilled fish, soft cheeses and Middle Eastern food."

ABC Wines review: A very pale yellow with greenish tones, this wine has aromas of citrus (grapefruit and lime) with some fresh grassy, maybe vegetal notes. The flavors on the palate are similar, though somewhat unbalanced, slightly sweet but lacking acidity. The finish is quite brief though a citric sensation does linger for a bit. Our score: A good wine to pair with mildly spicy Asian dishes; we served it with teriyaki meatball appetizers. Average, maybe a touch higher.
