Our review: Yellow-green in color, this wine is lightly aromatic, with notes of citrus and light spice. The palate is surprisingly fruitful in contrast, clean and fresh with moderate acidity and some mineral character. The finish is lengthy with a bit of heat, but otherwise unremarkable.

Our rating: Not a complex wine, but interesting nonetheless. We enjoyed our bottle with breaded chicken tenders and stir-fried vegetables, with which it paired nicely. It seems priced a little high at $10 for what we rate an Average wine.

Taste profile from the winemaker: "Clear pale yellow in colour, with greenish reflections. Fresh and slightly fruity bouquet with delicate aromas of acacia and elder blossoms. Dry, with an almond and honey aftertaste."
