Our review: Lemon yellow in color, this aromatic wine exhibits distinctive tropical fruit and floral, herbal and spice notes. Quite pleasing on the palate, almost creamy, there is an abundance of fruit flavor. The finish is clean, though rather flat without much character.

Our rating: This is a good everyday meal wine, capable of pairing nicely with a wide variety of cuisines. We served our bottle at a Sunday brunch buffet that included a number of dishes. It would even work well as sipping wine on a lazy afternoon. We rate it Above Average.

Taste profile from the winemaker: "Aromas: Mint, linden flower, green apple. Style: Bone dry, fresh, crisp, snappy, clean, light, refreshing."
