Our review and rating: Light greenish gold in color, this wine has a bright, fresh citrus aroma with faint herbal notes. The palate is initially pleasantly crisp and semi-dry with citrus and green apple flavors. A notable acidity builds into the finish though dissipates fairly quickly. Our score: A nice, if not memorable, wine to serve with a light lunch or to place in a picnic basket. About Average.

No taste profile from the winemaker found.

Winery website: The Little Penguin. Note: This wine is not mentioned on the winery website (which doesn't look as if it has been updated since 2007.) The bottle image is similar, but not identical, to the wine reviewed.
