Our review: Greenish gold in color, this wine has a significant floral aroma with tree fruit (peach) notes. The flavor profile on the palate is reminiscent of jasmine and similar floral or fruit-flavored teas. The finish is lengthy and rather complex.
Our rating: We enjoyed this wine, which is presented in an unusual curved bottle. We think it is best served with a light lunch or as an aperitif. We mis-paired it with a chicken and pasta dish; it was just OK but we could readily see its potential with lighter dishes. For what we rate to be an Average wine, we think it priced a little on the high side.
Taste profile from the winemaker: "Intense and slightly aromatic bouquet [with a] delicate flavour."
