Our review: Greenish gold in color, this wine exhibits aromas of tree fruit (golden delicious apple) with slight floral notes. Of light- to medium-body on the palate, the fruit flavors have a mineral character resulting in a crisp, clean taste. The finish brings out a brief citric acidity but is otherwise not memorable.

Our rating: Priced attractively, this would make a fine everyday wine and should pair very well with most pasta dishes. We consider this varietal wine to be Above Average.

Taste profile from the winemaker: "Pale yellow in color with green highlights, clean and brilliant. Fruity citrus aromas. Fresh on the palate with well balanced acidity, subtle citrus flavors and a very pleasant, ample finish."
