Our review: Tree fruit aromas (apple, pear) are exhibited by this light lemon colored wine, accompanied by pleasing floral notes. The flavor profile on the palate is similar, though slightly unbalanced and a bit on the tart side. The finish is rather flat without much character.

Our rating: Given this wine's price point, it's actually quite a decent wine. Probably best served with food that tends to round off the rough edges. Still, in the end, an undistinguished wine but a very good value. We rate it on the low side of Average.

Taste profile from the winemaker: "Color: Bright straw gold. Bouquet: Delicate and pleasing with floral and fruit scents. Taste: Dry, light and crisp."
