Our review: The color of straw, this wine exhibits aromas of tree fruit (notably peaches) with distinct floral notes. There is a good balance of fruit flavors and acidity on the palate but the finish is somewhat incongruous, with a nutty, almost earthy character, not unpleasant but rather unexpected.

Our rating: We served this wine with a soup course with which it paired quite nicely, but believe it is best paired with seafood dishes. We rate it about Average.
