Our review: A pale greenish gold in color, this wine has tree fruit aromas with some floral and spice notes. The fruit flavors on the palate are of crisp apple and pear. The acidic balance is slightly off, though. The finish is lengthy but unremarkable.

Our rating: This wine is just OK, somewhat flat and without a lot of character. We served our bottle with a vegetable risotto, with which it paired nicely, if not memorably. There's really nothing we can say is wrong with it, but on the other hand, we really can't give ourselves a reason to buy another bottle. For what we score to be an Average wine, it's priced on the high side.
