Our review and rating: A soft golden in color, this wine displays bright vibrant aromas of tropical fruit with some floral notes. Smooth on the palate, the flavors have a hint of sweetness before a round, nicely balanced acidity develops. The finish is complex, adding some earthy spice character to the evolving fruit flavors, and is of considerable length. Our score: A fine wine to serve at an elegant dinner party. Excellent.

Taste profile from the winemaker: "An intensely aromatic and distinctive wine with predominant aromas of white peaches, and hints of jasmine and rose. This summery white wine displays a pleasant freshness with citrus notes and a long, full finish."
