Our review and rating: Straw in color, this wine has distinctive aromas of gooseberry, green apple, grass, and just a hint of asparagus. There is a nice balance of fruit flavors (notably peaches), minerals, and acidity on the palate. The undistinguished finish is quite flat and not memorable. Our score: A nice wine to serve with roast chicken and vegetables. Just Average, maybe a touch higher.

Taste profile from the winemaker: "Peaches on the nose with pink grapefruit, lime and gooseberry on the palate. This wine is a perfect cross between a Sancerre and a ripe Marlborough, New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. Good crisp acidity with mineral and stone fruit to balance. Blends nicely with shellfish, especially oysters, pasta salads, grilled shrimp or seared scallops."

Winery website: None found.
