Our review: A pale yellow-green in color, this wine has aromas of green apple and citrus. The wine is light-bodied and initially exhibits a brisk acidity. Citrus and apple flavors are soon discernable on the palate with lime dominating somewhat, leading into a fairly long finish with a dry slate character.

Our rating: A pleasant wine, if not a memorable one, and priced a little on the high side. It would pair well with most vegetarian dishes or a light salad. We consider it about Average. Note: The synthetic cork was exceptionally difficult to remove.

No taste profile from the winemaker found.
