Our review: A pale yellow, this wine exhibits a significant floral aroma with notes of apple, peach, and apricot. The medium-bodied palate has considerable fruit flavor which is quickly surpassed by a honeyed sweetness, not excessive, but considerable nonetheless. The finish, though still sweet and fruity, has a somewhat mineral chalkiness to it.

Our rating: Pair this wine with a cheese platter or possibly with a light dessert. We think it priced too high for what is at best an Average example of this varietal.

Taste profile from the winemaker: "A lovely wine with floral notes, peach and pear flavours and a refreshing finish."
