Our review: Virtually colorless with only the slightest tint of green, this wine exhibits aromas of tree fruit and citrus. A mineral crispness dominates the palate, which also has a quite tart, unbalanced citrus character to it. The finish is overly astringent, and lacks a significant flavor profile.

Our rating: This is a disappointing effort, especially at this price point. It is largely the wine equivalent of lemonade and should probably be considered as such, served on a hot summer day with barbequed chicken on the grill. Our score: Below Average.

Taste profile from the winemaker: "Vibrant aromas and flavors of grapefruit, green apple, and citrus complemented by hints of green grass and mineral with a crisp, refreshing mouthfeel."
