Our review: Pale yellow in color, this wine has a pleasant blend of citrus, apple, and peach aromas with floral overnotes. Of medium body on the palate, the fruit flavors are nicely balanced with a crisp acidity. The finish is surprisingly long but seems in contrast to, and in some ways conflict with, with the initial experience.

Our rating: A good sipping wine or one to serve with a light lunch or to accompany a picnic. We rate it on the high side of Average.

Taste profile from the winemaker: "Presents itself like a true Bomba de Fruita, showing a strong floral nose that’s balanced with honeysuckle, white peaches and even lychee. The palate opens up to summer cantaloupe, peach, apricot and tropical fruits, ending with a nice pleasant finish."
