Our review: Light golden straw in color, this wine has dominant citrus aromas with distinct spicy, almost smoky notes. Light- to medium-bodied on the palate, there isn't much fruit flavor here; there is a hint of spicy sweetness though. The finish is of moderate length, but otherwise unremarkable.

Our rating: This is an interesting wine, with lots of subtleties, but not one of much depth. We served our bottle with a mildly seasoned chicken and rice dish, possibly not the best pairing; grilled seafood, or maybe even barbecued chicken, is probably a better match. Priced a little on the high side for what it is, we rate it just Average.

No taste profile from the winemaker found.
