Our review: Straw-colored with tints of green, this wine has aromas of a blend of tropical (kiwi, melon) and tree fruits (pear, peach) with floral citrus notes. Of medium-body on the palate, the fruit flavors come alive, ever so slightly sweet at first before quickly being balanced by a mild acidity. The finish is clean and pleasant.

Our rating: We enjoyed this white wine blend. The two varietals work well together to form a well-rounded, complex wine, which can easily be paired with many cuisines; our choice would be Asian-inspired dishes. We rate it Above Average, nearly Excellent.

No taste profile from the winemaker found.
