Our review: Nearly colorless with shades of gold and silver, this wine has an aroma of citrus and citrus blossoms. Nicely balanced on the palate, there is a very slight sweetness to the fruit flavors, which tend to be more tropical in character. The finish is long and very pleasing.
Our rating: We enjoyed this wine. We served our bottle with pork medallions, which seemed to bring out some of the wine's more subtle characteristics. A good food-friendly wine, consider pairing it with a wide variety of cuisines, especially Asian. We rate it Above Average.
Taste profile from the winemaker: "Color: Very pale straw with golden highlights. Nose: Green apple, grapefruit, lime zest, and pear. Flavors: Tangerine, lemon, kiwi, pineapple. Mouthfeel: Crisp entry with nice balance between acidity and residual sugar, round and full mid-palate, clean refreshing finish."
