Taste profile from the winemaker: "A lush blend of juicy, tropical Verdelho and exotically perfumed Viognier combine with Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling to create a refreshing, firmly structured wine. Rich and vibrant flavors of tropical fruit, apricot, and grapefruit work wonders on the palate."

ABC Wines review: This white wine blend has a fragrance of melon and other tropical fruits with distinct floral notes. The wine is of medium body on the palate with full fruit flavors continuing to develop into the finish which adds a touch of acidity and is of moderate length. This would be an ideal wine to serve with spicy Asian cuisines. Our score: We were dubious at first about the blend but this wine surprised us. Attractively priced, it is Above Average.
