Our review: Yellow gold in color, this wine has an aroma of citrus (grapefruit) and the fresh outdoors (grass) with faint floral notes. Pleasantly crisp on the palate, there's more mineral than fruit character present. The complexity of the wine increases into the finish where a bright acidity develops and the fruit flavors deepen somewhat.

Our rating: A distinguished effort that would make an elegant addition to any dinner party. We enjoyed our bottle with a hearty chowder, not quite as refined as this wine but delicious nonetheless. We rate it just shy of Excellent.

No taste profile from the winemaker found.

Winery website: Quivira Wine. Note: This wine was made from grapes grown at the 100% certified organic Fig Tree vineyard.
