Our review: Pale gold in color, this wine has a floral fragrance with peach, melon, and tropical fruit notes. Similar fruit flavors are evident on the palate but are weakly developed. A mild acidity extends into the finish which is somewhat watery and astringent, but otherwise undistinguished.

Our rating: We were rather disappointed with this wine. We served it with a pasta dish, but we think it might pair better with shellfish. We rate it on the low side of Average.

Taste profile from the winemaker: "Pale straw color with some brilliant highlights. Very fresh bouquet that brings to mind mineral notes, apples and pears with a slightly exotic touch. This intensity on the nose comes through again in the mouth with full fruit flavors and outstanding freshness that lingers on the palate."
