Our review: Light golden yellow in color, this wine has aromas of citrus and lemon grass with slight floral notes. The fruit flavors, which are more tropical in character, are full and rounded on the palate with a good acidic balance. The finish has a very slight sweetness to it.
Our rating: We could not find any information about the grapes used in this white wine blend (which seems to be exclusive to Wine Insiders), but the citrus (and to a lesser extent tree fruit) character suggests that it may be primarily (or mostly) pinot grigio. We enjoyed its full flavor, and served it with an appetizer platter, with which it paired quite nicely. Overall, we rate it Above Average, nearly Excellent. The price indicated is suggested retail; if coupled with a package deal, it is less, in which case this wine is a very good value.
Taste profile from the vendor: "Delicately aromatic with flavors of ripe pear and surprisingly bright citrus notes in a medium bodied, delicious to the last drop quaffer."
