Our review: A pale golden straw in color, this wine has fresh tropical fruit aromas (pineapple, banana) with notes of orange blossom. Very fruitful on the palate, there is a nice balancing acidity to the fruit flavors. The finish is relatively brief, though has an interesting complexity to it.

Our rating: This is a lovely wine, one that is easy to enjoy as is, watching the sun set or while relaxing with a good book. If served with a meal, we suggest a light lunch or possibly an afternoon tea. We rate this wine, made with organic grapes, Above Average, nearly Excellent.
