Our review and rating: Greenish straw in color, this wine has aromas of fresh peach and green apple with light citrus notes. Crisp on the palate the fruit flavors slowly develop becoming ever so slightly more sweet into the finish. The finish itself is quite long, but somewhat unbalanced with some mineral character. Our score: Though fairly old, this is rather a nice wine. Serve with vegetarian dishes or a spinach and mushroom omelet. Above Average.

Taste profile from the winemaker: "Bright and fresh with good texture, acidity and length. "
