Our review: Straw with silver highlights, this wine has a pleasing blend of tropical fruit aromas, including melon, banana, and papaya. There is little of those fruits on the palate though, the flavors having a watery character. The finish has some body to it but is otherwise unremarkable.

Our rating: We were slightly disappointed with this wine. It did improve, however, as it warmed, so it's possible our initial reaction was based on a too cold temperature. Or maybe it needed to breathe a bit. We served our bottle with a vegetable omelet, with which it paired adequately well. We think pasta would probably have been a better choice, though. Overall, we rate it about Average.
