Our review: Aromas of green apple with some light spice notes are present in this golden straw colored wine. The palate has a similar flavor profile, though is a little tart. The finish adds some balance, and is relatively long.

Our rating: We have mixed feelings about this wine. Our initial impression was somewhat negative, but improved as we drank it. It seems to demand food be consumed with it, and though we paired it with a chicken dish, we think it may actually be better with seafood. When we score the wine, it rates about Average. We previously rated the Yellow Tail "The Reserve" Pinot Grigio 2006 Average.

Taste profile from the winemaker: "Pale straw in colour this wine displays delicate and juicy aromas and flavours of pear, green apple and lime. Overall the wine is crisp and dry showing a fine mineral acidity."
