Our review: Yellow-gold in color, this wine exhibits aromas of green apple, bell pepper, and sweet aromatic herbs. Of light- to medium-body on the palate, the flavors are similar to those noted on the nose accompanied by a mild acidity. The finish has a slight chalk-like character that's somewhat unpleasant.

Our rating: We served this wine with chicken sandwiches, and we think it would pair well with many poultry dishes. It lacks, however, the depth and complexity necessary to elevate it into the top tier of this varietal; we rate it at best just Average.

Taste profile from the winemaker: "Straw-yellow with greenish shades, finely aromatic, delicate and dry wine. Both the bouquet and the taste recall yellow pepper, gooseberry, tomato leaf. Quite high alcoholic content, fair acidity, dry with a pleasant aftertaste."
