Our review: This wine has a very pleasing bouquet of tropical fruit -- pineapple, papaya -- with fresh vegetal notes (bell pepper). Very fruitful on the palate, the is a good balance between the fruit flavors and acidity. The finish is complex and of moderate length.

Our rating: This is a very nice example of this varietal, not often seen in the US and certainly not at this price point. Quite versatile for pairing, we think it may work best with grilled fish and vegetables. Surprise your guests with this wine at your next dinner party; we rate it just shy of Excellent.
