Our review: Pure yellow gold in color, this wine has aromas of tropical fruit with a distinct spice note. Fruitful on the palate, the flavors have some herbal character. The finish is lengthy with considerable depth.

Our rating: Most definitely not a wine for sipping, we suggest pairing it with flavorful dishes, such as a pasta with a rich sauce, which is how we enjoyed our bottle. There's a lot of complexity here, but it doesn't always work harmoniously. Still, we rate it Above Average.

Taste profile from the winemaker: "Typical aroma of jasmine, white flowers and tropical fruits with a fresh and fragrant finish. "
