Our review: Golden straw in color, this wine has aromas of citrus and spice. The fruit flavors seem to cascade over the palate, a nice sensation. The finish, though, isn't all that memorable, brief and rather flat.

Our rating: This is a pleasant summer wine, good for a picnic or a lunch at an outdoor café. We served ours with a crisp green salad and fresh vegetables, a nice choice. Not a good value at this price; look for it a couple of dollars less. We rate it on the high side of Average.

Taste profile from the winemaker: "On the nose, citrus aromas of lemongrass complement melon and pear notes. The wine was tank fermented at cooler temperatures to retain these bright aromatics. The palate showcases bright fruit flavors of melon, pear and pineapple, focused mineral notes and a crisp finish."
