Our review: Straw in color, fresh tree fruit (apple and pear) aromas are presented with subtle notes of lemongrass and orange blossom. Soft on the palate, the fruit flavors are quite smooth with a more pronounced citrus character. An acidity develops into the finish which, though rather brief, is nicely balanced.

Our rating: We enjoyed this wine on a warm spring day with chicken salad on a bed of spinach but it is versatile enough to be paired with a wide variety of dishes. We rate it well Above Average.

Taste profile from the winemaker: "Freshly cut grass and spring herbs tease the nose, while touches of tropical gooseberry and citrus embrace the palate. Absolutely refreshing, this wine has a lovely, full mouthfeel to balance its crisp acidity, not to mention a lasting and memorable finish."
