Our review: Golden straw in color, this wine is powerfully fragrant, with aromas of tree fruit (apple, apricot) and orange blossom; there's also a hint of honey. Very smooth with a medium body on the palate, the fruit flavors are well balanced. The finish is ever so slightly tart, but otherwise rather unremarkable.

Our rating: We enjoyed this wine, and found it to be very food friendly. The round, soft feel suggests at least partial oak cellaring -- but we don't know for sure. We served our bottle with roasted chicken and vegetables, with which it paired quite nicely, though it could easily be served with seafood or even pork dishes. We rate it to be Above Average, nearly Excellent.
