Our review and rating: Aromas of citrus and grapefruit and kiwi are exhibited by this wine. Fruitful on the palate, a brisk acidity develops midway into the finish that quickly becomes unbalanced. The finish itself has a mineral quality to it with a sense of spice or herbs. Our score: Not a memorable wine. Average for what it is, but over-priced.

Taste profile from the winemaker: "A pale green, straw-yellow color in the glass. The nose is filled with layers of citrus and tropical fruit notes with a hint of floral. The palate echoes the nose with vibrant and fresh tropical fruit flavors and finish is long with a lively acidity."
