Our review: Golden yellow in color with bright tropical fruit and herbacious aromas and just a hint of vanilla. Smooth on the palate, the primarily citrus flavors are nicely balanced with a moderating acidity. The finish has a touch too much citrus and minerality to it, but otherwise is pleasing.

Our rating: A very versatile, food-friendly and likely crowd-pleasing wine. Without a lot of depth or character, it is probably best suited for appetizers or light meals such as turkey sandwiches or green salads. On the score sheet it rates just Average, but our guess is most people will enjoy this wine.

Taste profile from the winemaker: "Rich fruity aromas and bright flavors of tropical fruit. It is highlighted by notes of fresh lime that give way to a long round finish."
