Our review: Aromas of white peach and citrus blossoms with notes of honey are exhibited by this golden colored wine. Light and crisp on the palate, the tropical fruit-like flavors are subtle, accompanied by a slight spiciness. The finish is interesting and has some complexity and depth.

Our rating: This is a very nice wine, a perfect accompaniment to a vegetable dish or a risotto, or possibly a salad (though it seems a little rich for that). We enjoyed our bottle with a light and quick chicken dish, which also worked well. We rate it Above Average, nearly Excellent.

No taste profile from the winemaker found.
