Our review: Silver-gold in color, this wine has a very pleasing tropical fruit and citrus blend aroma with just a hint of grass. Nicely balanced on the palate and quite smooth, the fruit flavors are accompanied by a crisp mineral character. The finish is exceptionally long but somewhat one-dimensional, lacking depth.

Our rating: We generally haven't rated viuras very highly, but this blend with sauvignon blanc and viognier is rather interesting. We served our bottle with grilled chicken and french fried potatoes, but we think seafood may be a better choice for pairing. Definitely a wine to consider when looking for something different, we rate it Above Average.
