Our review: Green tinted straw in color with citrus and lemongrass aromas and very slight floral notes, this wine has a wonderful balance of fruit flavors and acidity on the palate. The grassy character is rather subdued here, adding interest and depth. The finish seems relatively brief, though tends to linger on the palate for an extended period of time.

Our rating: This is a rather nice wine, crisp and refreshing. Very food friendly, it probably best pairs with seafood (shellfish) though you could confidently serve it with most any dish. We actually served ours with a first course and it was delicious. Attractively priced, we rate it Above Average, Nearly Excellent.

Taste profile from the winemaker: "Yellow colour with greenish highlights. Citric aromas of lime and green aple. Notes of vegetable hints at the nose. Fresh in the mouth with good acidity and body."
