Our review: Golden straw in color with aromas of apple and peach, and floral notes with honey. Quite sweet on the palate, but also a little bitter. The finish is a bit chalky.
Our rating: As this wine was new to us, we weren't quite sure what to do with it, so we served it with dessert, probably not a terrible choice but not terribly inspired either. Even now, we're still not sure -- but think it probably best pairs with something like a Sunday brunch buffet, where there are a variety of foods to choose from. It's low alcohol content also suggests it might be an appropriate "early in the day" wine. We rate it on the low side of Average.
No taste profile from the winemaker found.
